Tehran (IP)- The Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei referring to the effects of the Al-Aqsa storm operation said that the barbaric and merciless act of the Israeli regime in the crime against the people of Gaza dishonored the civilization and culture of the West.

Iran Press/ Iran news: In a meeting with the Basijis early on Wednesday Ayatollah Khamenei said, " Basij's logic is to strengthen the country to the maximum against threats and dangers. Basij is to maximize the possibility of the country's resistance against any danger and threat."

Ayatollah Khamenei added: "The Al-Aqsa Storm operation was historic. It was not only against the Zionist regime, but de-Americanization. Al-Aqsa storm was able to disrupt the American plans in the region. God willing, if this storm continues, it will erase the US plans to implement its policies in the region."

The Leader emphasized that the brutal and merciless action that the Zionist regime committed in the crime against the people of Gaza, not only dishonored the reputation of the Zionist regime, but also dishonored the US, the main European countries, and the civilization and culture of the West.

The culture and civilization of the West are the same civilization that when it kills five thousand children with a phosphorus bomb, a Western regime says that Israel is defending itself; is that self-defense? This is the culture of the West; in this war, the culture of the West was discredited.

He added: "The Islamic Republic of Iran believes in the referendum in Palestine. We are not thinking about throwing Zionists and Jews into the sea. This is not true, it is a lie, and this was once said by some Arabs."
