Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Sunday that breathing a new spirit into the Resistance Front was truly an outstanding and essential part of Martyr Soleimani’s endeavors.


The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution met with the family of Martyr General Qassem Soleimani and the officials of the General Soleimani Commemoration Ceremonies on January 1, 2023.


During the meeting which took place at noon on Sunday, January 1, 2023, Ayatollah Khamenei stated that breathing a new spirit into the Resistance Front was truly an outstanding and essential part of Martyr Soleimani’s endeavors.


“By strengthening the physical, spiritual and mental aspects of the Resistance, the General preserved, equipped and revived this everlasting and growing phenomenon against the Zionist regime and the influence of the US and other arrogant countries,” Supreme Leader noted.


Imam Khamenei believes that the testimony of Sayyid Hassan Nasrallah, a unique human being, about General Soleimani’s struggles is a great means for understanding the importance of General Soleimani’s work in reviving the Resistance.


The Leader of the Revolution spoke about the progress that the Palestinians have made in confronting the Zionists as well as the achievements of the Resistance Front in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen. Imam Khamenei stated, “General Soleimani used the experience that he had attained during the period of the Holy Defense as well as the advice of his comrades to strengthen the Resistance by relying on the internal capacities of these same countries.”


Ayatollah Khamenei also praised General Soleimani’s accomplishments and referred to the manner in which the General uprooted and put an end to the activities of the Daesh terrorist group.

He stressed the fact that Martyr Soleimani had done very well in that test.


The Supreme Leader of the Revolution expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the Commander of the IRGC Quds Force, Brigadier General Ismail Qa’ani, by saying, “Praise God, the void due to the absence of the General [Soleimani] has been filled in many instances.”


“The Resistance Movement considers itself to be the strategic depth and influence of the Islamic Republic and the wings of Islam, and this Movement will continue moving in this direction,” he added.


In another part of his speech, the Supreme Leader explained that the public honoring of General Soleimani and the voluntary attendance of people in various commemoration ceremonies is a result of General Soleimani’s sincere nature.


He said, “This year, like last year, people are attending these ceremonies with enthusiasm. By the grace of God, there are no problems or lacks in the meaningful presence of the nation and their appreciation for General Soleimani.”
