“The assassination of the martyrs Soleimani and Abu Mahdi hurt the hearts of the free people of the world in the East and the West but we are proud to be a nation whose martyrs are commanders and whose commanders are martyrs,” Hojat-ol-Islam Sheikh Akram al-Kaabi said in a post on his Twitter account.
According to the Communication and Media Affairs Centre of al-Nujaba in Iran, Hojat-ol-Islam al-Kaabi, issued a statement on the occasion of the first anniversary of the martyrdom of the two figures, saying, “It is with great sadness and pride that we welcome the first anniversary of the martyrdom of Haj Qasem Soleimani and Haj Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, who were assassinated by the arrogant evil-doers, namely the United States – the forerunner of infidelity – and its protégé, Israel.”
He added, “We are saddened by the loss of two warrior heroes in the fight against terrorism and the arrogant powers of the world but we are also proud to be a nation whose martyrs are commanders and its commanders are martyrs.”
Emphasizing that this assassination hurt the hearts of the free people of the world in the East and the West, he pointed out, “The hypocrites, the enemies of the truth and those ‘with a foot in the stirrups’ are happy with this incident. However, these two martyrs were symbols of the global resistance against the arrogant powers of the world, slavery and abuse of rights.”
In conclusion, the secretary-general of al-Nujaba described martyrdom as a long-standing dream of the martyrs Soleimani and Abu Mahdi, which God Almighty finally provided for them.
