TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Head of the Intifada (Palestinian uprising) and Quds Center at Iran’s Islamic Propagation Coordination Council praised the resistance forces’ recent attack against Israeli positions in Golan Heights as unprecedented since the establishment of the Zionist regime.

“For the first time since the formation of the Zionist regime, Israel received a heavy blow from the Resistance Front in the Golan Heights,” Ramezan Sharif said, addressing a congregation of worshipers here in Tehran on Friday.

He was referring to a missile attack by the resistance forces against Israel earlier in May, in which 20 projectiles were fired at the occupied Golan Height.

“This is the beginning of a great path,” he said, adding, “Israel should be aware that it is considered as a cancerous tumor and a violator of all rules in the eyes of the world's freedom-seekers.”

“Free nations will finally take revenge on Israel for its atrocities against the Palestinian people,” the official went on to say.

Ramezan Sharif also pointed to the upcoming international Quds Day and said the annual event initiated by Imam Khomeini (RA), the founder of the Islamic Republic, has been popular among Muslim nations around the world over the past years.

The International Quds Day is an annual event during which demonstrators express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel.

The day is also seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini, who officially declared the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan as International Quds Day back in 1979.

This year, Muslims world over will mark the International Quds Day on June 8.
