Leader says Israel will receive slap in the face for Syria attack

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the Israeli regime will receive a slap in the face for an attack on the premises of the Iranian embassy in Syria’s capital earlier this week.

In an address to officials of the Iranian administration and other branches of government on Wednesday, the Leader said the attack would fail to save Israel from its defeat in Gaza where it has been engaged in nearly six months of aggression against the Palestinians.

“The cowardly efforts by the Zionist regime like the one they carried out in Syria will not save them from defeat. They will of course receive a slap in the face for this move,” he said.

“The Zionist regime’s defeat in Gaza will continue and this regime will approach demise and collapse,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.

He said that demonstrations planned for this year’s Quds Day, which will be marked on April 5 on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, will mobilize supporters of Palestine not only in Muslim countries but in non-Muslim countries who have been pushing for an end to the Israeli aggression on Gaza. 

“This year’s Quds Day will be an international revolt against the usurper Zionist regime,” the Leader said.

Iran is undertaking ‘vast infrastructure’ endeavors

Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader touched upon Iran’s current economic situation and said that the country is undertaking some vast economic infrastructure endeavors that will pay off in the future.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran has been going through some “sweet and bitter” economic experiences in recent years as he insisted that more work is needed to be done to improve the country’s economic situation.

“The sweet part of the economy entails the vast infrastructure activities which will bear results in the middle run and in the not-so distant future,” he said.
