Supreme Leader of the Islamic Ummah: Axis of Resistance has thwarted US regional schemes

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has praised the anti-Israel operations by resistance factions in Palestine, Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq.

The Axis of Resistance has demonstrated its potential and effectively disrupted Washington’s strategic calculations in West Asia, the Leader stated.

Ayatollah Khamenei was extending his remarks during an address marking the Persian New Year in Tehran on Wednesday.

The Leader said the United States’ long-standing ambition to dominate the region has been undermined by the resilience of the Axis of Resistance.

The United States is now left with no option but to withdraw from the region, Ayatollah Khamenei said.

He refuted Western allegations that Iran orchestrates every act of resistance in the region, clarifying that while Iran supports these movements, they operate on their own.

Highlighting the plight of Palestinians, Ayatollah Khamenei said no conscientious person can remain silent in the face of the genocidal oppression undertaken by the Israeli regime in Gaza.

The Leader said Washington has emerged as a “big loser” in the war in Gaza.

The unwavering support the United States gives Israel has severely damaged its global reputation, inciting ten times more hatred towards Washington in the region, Ayatollah Khamenei stated.

‘Gaza has shown Israel’s fragility’

The Leader said the Israeli campaign of death and destruction in Gaza has illustrated the fragility of the regime given its struggle to get out of the “quagmire” of the besieged Palestinian territory.

“The Zionist regime is defeated whether it gets out of Gaza or not.”

Israel is now beset by deep divisions from within, the Leader said, and the internal strife is hastening the decline of the regime.

Ayatollah Khamenei censured the indifference of certain Western leaders toward the situation in Gaza and their continued support for Israel.

“Over 30,000 people are massacred, from infants to teens to youth to the elderly, men or women, to patients… Their houses are destroyed,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

“The civilized world watches and not only keeps from preventing [these atrocities] but facilitates them.”

The Leader said the Israeli occupation of Palestine is a “great injustice.”

‘People’s engagement key to bolstering economy’

On the New Year’s theme of enhancing production through people’s participation, the Leader reiterated that the economy remains the government’s top concern.

He urged mobilization of all resources and called for collective efforts by the entire nation to bolster economic growth.

The Leader highlighted the importance of implementing international economic agreements and improving efficiency as key strategies to further stimulate economy.

Despite ongoing attempts by adversaries aimed at “dismantling” Iran’s economy through sanctions and other tactics, the Leader said, these efforts have been consistently foiled by the resilience of the Iranian people.

The Leader said Iran’s adversaries are attempting to instill despair among the nation by exaggerating the challenges and minimizing the achievements.

Ayatollah Khamenei underscored the significance of keeping hope and recognizing Iran’s remarkable run of successes in the face of such tactics by the enemy.

Emphasizing the critical role of national unity, Ayatollah Khamenei urged more work to foster solidarity among all Iranians.

The Leader called on the people to refrain from propagating animosity and division and, instead, unite in confronting Iran’s enemies.
