Iran’s Leader Visits Earthquake-Hit Kermanshah

Monday, November 20, 2017 - 13:15

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has traveled to Kermanshah Province to meet with the grieved people of the earthquake-stricken areas.

Ayatollah Khamenei stated that, “I feel the same pain that each of you have in your hearts. I would have liked to be among you at a better time. I was also among you during the imposed war. You showed your mettle and endurance in the imposed war. Show it also today. The brave and heroic people stand and defeat the mishap.”

Ayatollah Khamenei was referring to the Iraqi war under the former dictator Saddam Hussein whose troops captured Sarpol-e-Zahab in 1980 before the city fought back and drove out the invaders, “See how Iran considers itself indebted to Kermanshah. Everyone helped as much as their means would allow them,” the Leader said.

The Leader said authorities should double their diligence and efforts to help those affected, "in the same way that the Army rushed to the assistance of those caught under the debris in the cities and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps did so in the villages in the early hours after the earthquake."

"Their presence was effective. Had they not come, we would have suffered much more bereavement and sadness, and our casualties would have gone much higher,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
