RNA – Speaking at a provincial meeting of the “Movasat” military exercises in North Khorasan province, Hujjat al-Islam Abolqasem Yaqoubi, the representative of the Supreme Leader in North Khorasan province, described the exercises as in line with the response to the call of the Supreme Leader of the Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei] for empathy and faithful support throughout the country.
The Friday prayer leader of Bojnourd said that our people have shown great brilliance during the past forty years, adding, “Our people have demonstrated themselves in a good manner throughout all the changes and afflictions. In fact, during the Islamic Revolution, the people became the mouthpiece of Imam Khomeyni and uprooted the oppressive Pahlavi regime, which was a great radiance in the history of Iran and Islam.”
Hujjat al-Islam Yaqoubi continued, “The Iranian people have shown themselves once again in the Holy Defence [Iran-Iraq War] and the hard times of that era. The vigorous defence of our people during the Holy Defence was an unprecedented historical brilliance that demonstrated that these people resists for their religion, country, faith and revolution.”
His Eminence added, “Throughout the history of the revolution, we have had many areas of tribulation and testing, including the Coronavirus, in which our people remained at home with perseverance, resilience, tolerance and obedience to the orders of the government. They obeyed the law of the land and showed great brilliance, including in helping, sympathizing and empathizing with each other.”
He said, “During the time that we have inflicted with this virus, we saw good empathy and support from the Iranian people in all scenes so that people from all strata of society somehow demonstrated their help to the needy and the health warriors.”
Hujjat al-Islam Yaqoubi added, “When we see issues such as the theft of masks and empty shops in foreign countries, and on the other hand we see the dignity of our nation, we must give a great score to our people because their social, cultural and religious maturity emerged during their struggle against the Coronavirus.”
