True Promise Operation targets heart of arrogance: IRGC chief

TEHRAN, May 19 (MNA) – The IRGC's recent missile and drone attack on the Zionist regime – Known as the “True Promise” operation – targeted the heart of arrogance, the chief of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says.

Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks on Sunday at the closing ceremony of the First National Hope Media Cup in Tehran. 

In an era when the foes are seeking to instill disappointment in Iranian society, the media should create hope, he said. 

Touching on the role of reporters in society, the commander said that the work of journalists is synonymous with the efforts of combatants on the battlefield. 

Media raise awareness about the developments and provide political insight in a time of spreading misinformation, he further noted.

The IRGC commander pointed out that the media creates the torch of hope in the hearts of the people.

Salami urged all Iranian journalists and photojournalists to be engaged in the Jihad of Clarification and cover the progress of the Islamic Republic.

The enemy’s main plan is to use false publicity, or propaganda, as they call it. The way to overcome propaganda is with “clarification.” Clarifying the truth [must be done] by different people, with different voices, with different interpretations, and using new forms, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said. 

"Jihad of clarification must be taken seriously, by everyone, in the seminaries, in the universities, and in particular on radio and television, in the printed media, in all the places where you are, all around you." 

In the face of the foes' scheme, Ayatollah Khamenei considers it to be the duty of the elite to engage in the jihad of clarification and to nullify the doubts and uncertainties created by the ill-wishers.

The First National Hope Media Cup which started on Saturday at the Comprehensive University of Islamic Revolution in the capital city will wrap up today. 

The national festival served as a platform where reporters and photojournalists covered the speeches delivered by high-ranking officials and experts on various topics within 36 hours in the country.
