I would like to express my congratulations and
condolences on the occasion of the martyrdom
of our glorious Sardar- Shahid Hussein
Hamedani- to his honorable family, his friends,
his comrades and the august Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.
This veteran, sincere and diligent warrior spent
his pure and pious youth defending his Islamic
homeland and the Islamic republic in the front
lines of honor and dignity. He spent the last
stage of his blessed life and enlightened
countenance defending the sanctuary of the
Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) and confronting savage takfiris
and anti-Islam. He fulfilled his dream which was to lay down his life – in that same glorious front line – while engaging in jihad in the way of God.
May he rejoice in divine blessings and mercy.
The formidable line of those who aspire to
achieve this blessing and the path of jihad and
martyrdom in Islamic Iran, in the Islamic
Revolution Guards Corps and in the entire Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic- is a long and firm line: “Of them some have completed their vow and some still wait, but they have never changed in the least” [The Holy Quran, 33: 23].
God’s mercy be upon Shahid Hamedani and upon all the mujahids of the path of truth.
Sayyid Ali Khamenei
