Iranian Supreme Commander Khamenei blasts US and Israeli regimes

TEHRAN - In an address to the graduation ceremony of IRGC cadets in Tehran on Sunday, Ayatollah Khamenei slammed the US and the Zionists for “sucking the blood” of nations, warmongering activities, causing catastrophes, and treating other nations with cruelty and suppression.

The Leader emphasized that Iran, according to the religious teachings, is duty bound to counter the enemies and will never capitulate to the US and various pressures from the adversaries.

Ayatollah Khamenei also highlighted the growing dignity of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) inside and outside Iran, stressing that the US’ hostile and antagonistic policies resulted in the promotion of the IRGC’s dignity.

Referring to a verse from holy Quran about the need for constant preparedness in the face of enemies, the Leader said Almighty God has promised to create a “deterrent fear” in the hearts of enemies on Muslims.

Highlighting the necessity for increasing readiness, Ayatollah Khamenei called on the IRGC forces to create a powerful, rigid and inclusive organization and constantly boost their scientific, expert, tactical, strategic and operational power with tireless efforts.
