Israel to receive slap in face for consulate attack: Leader

TEHRAN, Apr. 03 (MNA) – The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Wed. that Israeli regime's defeat in Gaza battle will continue, stressing that the regime will receive a slap in the face for attacking Iran's consulate.

The Leader received the government officials, military commanders, former officials, lawmakers, the heads of the three branches of the Iranian government (legislative or parliament, executive or government and Judiciary), a report by the national TV's correspondent said earlier on Wednesday.

President Ebrahim Raeisi presented a report about his administration's performance and future programs to the Leader at the meeting, which was held in Imam Khomeini Hoseyniyeh in downtown Tehran. 

This was the fourth meeting by the Leader during this Ramadan.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the Monday terrorist attack on Iran's consulate in Syria's capital of Damascus and said that the cowardly attack by the Zionist regime will not save the Zionists from their defeat. 

“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,” the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said, according to Press TV.

“The Zionist regime’s defeat in Gaza will continue and this regime will approach demise and collapse,” he added.

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.

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.

Ayatollah Khamenei described the crimes committed by the Israeli regime in Gaza as “unprecedented in history” and said the scale of crimes even caused uproar among people who have been brought up in the Western culture.

He said the Zionists failed to achieve any of the objectives they had declared in the onset of the war on Gaza in October despite enjoying military, financial and political support of the United States.

“We hope that our youth would see a day when the Holy Quds is controlled by the Muslims and they pray in it and the world of Islam celebrates the annihilation of the usurping regime,” said Ayatollah Khamenei.
