|Leader warns about danger of forgetting or distorting Sacred Defense||
TEHRAN – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned about the danger of forgetting or distorting certain aspects of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war, which is known as the Sacred Defense in Iran.
He made the remarks during a meeting with the organizers of Rahian-e Noor expeditions, which take Iranian people to former war zones and sites of battles during the Iran-Iraq war.
“(Consignment to) oblivion and distortion are two major dangers awaiting every great historical event, and… the relevant officials for the Sacred Defense… should not allow this epic to be afflicted by (consignment to) oblivion and distortion,” the Leader said.
Ayatollah Khamenei also touched on the Palestine issue, saying that the arrogant powers are currently devising plots to divert the world’s attention from the unprecedented event of the eviction of the Palestinian people from their homeland.
