In a speech last night in Tehran, during an audience granted to a large gathering of university students, he said that in a crude reaction to Iran’s moral and spiritually influence in the region, Saudi Arabia and its accomplices have been relentlessly bombing the homes and hearths of the Yemeni people.
It is now more than 100 days that the Saudis have been raining bombs on the people of Yemen, even in the blessed month of Ramadhan, while openly saying that the main reason for their attacks is the popularity of the grassroots Ansarullah Movement which is inspired by the Islamic Republic of Iran. The regime in Riyadh, which is the initiator of the war in Yemen, has feverishly accused Iran of what it calls interference in the affairs of Arab states such as Yemen, Lebanon, Syria and Iraq, while the fact of the matter is that, it is Saudi which is behind the destruction and destabilization of Arab state by funding Takfiri outfits to unleashing terrorism on a wide scale.
Unlike Saudi Arabia that promotes sectarian terrorism, the Islamic Republic of Iran firmly adheres to its principled policy of supporting the oppressed people and confronting the oppressors. This is one of the dynamics of the Islamic Revolution that triumphed in Iran in 1979 to inspire freedom movements in the region and beyond. Accordingly, whenever the voice of an oppressed is heard, Islamic Iran has provided moral support to popular movements. The Islamic Republic has always backed the demand of the people and taken the side the oppressed against the oppressed. As part of this policy, Tehran is providing moral and humanitarian support for the oppressed Yemeni people against the Saudi war machine.
Iran likewise supports the oppressed people of Palestine and Lebanon against the Zionist entity. Iran's support for the oppressed people of Palestine and designating the Last Friday of the blessed month of Ramadan as the "World Quds Day" by the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (God's mercy upon his soul), gave new life to the struggle of Palestinians and other Muslims for the liberation of Islam’s first qibla, Bayt al-Moqaddas. Thank God, the incessant efforts of the fabricated Zionist regime and its western backers have failed to kill the issue of Palestine.
As the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said: “The moral influence of Islamic Iran in the region is among the bounties of God, and is not based on supply of arms, which means the enemies of Islamic Iran should die of anger and fury”.
