Soleimani Was The "Master Of The Resistance Martyrs"
Kioumars Heydari: "The spirits of two dear martyrs are undoubtedly observing this forum, and I extend greetings to the pure spirits of those two martyrs. The first is our dear martyr, General Hajj Qasem Soleimani, who was the leader's soldier and field commander, for matters pertaining to the resistance axis.
SUPPORT OUR WORK
"He is the master of the resistance martyrs. This dear martyr generated so much honor and glory for Islam that the loathsome president of America back then sat in the operations room to oversee the assassination of this divine man.
General Tehrani-Moghaddam Designed And Produced Missiles To Be "Aimed At The Heart Of Israel"
"The second figure is the martyr General Tehrani-Moghaddam, a great man who – I may be saying this for the first time – designed and produced missiles that would be aimed at the heart of Israel, and would destroy that pustular growth in the region. I am certain that this blessed thing will take place."
