This meeting was held on the 44th anniversary of the historic pledge of allegiance by a group of the Army’s Homafar unit to Imam Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Revolution.
During this meeting, the Leader condoled with “our disaster-stricken brothers in both Syria and Turkey” over a tragic earthquake that left thousands dead in both countries.
He asked Almighty God for mercy for the deceased and patience for the bereaved, saying, “We ourselves have been afflicted, [therefore] we know how hard it is when earthquake hits, when the loved ones of families are destroyed, how bitter it is, how bitter they feel.”
Ayatollah Khamenei also honored the faithful, revolutionary, beloved, and popular Army of the Islamic Republic of Iran as the doer of “big, fantastic works.”
He said that the Army’s pledge of allegiance to Imam Khomeini was a key factor in the victory of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
He stressed that the main goal of the enemy is to bring the Islamic Republic to its knees and destroy it by creating discord and mistrust within the country.
“The most important task in the face of this evil plot is to maintain the strategy of unity, and by the grace of God, the 22nd of Bahman this year will be the manifestation of unity and national trust, and the people will clearly convey this message to all ill-wishers that their efforts to create distrust and destroy national unity has been neutralized,” the Leader said.
