Major General Baqeri issued the statement on the eve of the International Quds Day (May 7), which is annually held on the last Friday of the fasting month of Ramadan to express their solidarity with the Palestinian people and opposition to the occupation of the Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime of Israel, Mehr News Agency reported.
The day is seen as the legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, who officially declared last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan as the International Quds Day back in 1979, following the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
The top military official described the International Quds Day as the most important and influential event in the process of resistance and struggle of Muslim and oppressed people of Palestine against oppression, crimes and occupation of the Israeli regime.
He further described the late Imam Khomeini as a mobilizing and unifying force in the Islamic world who was able to create the necessary grounds for the formation of the global anti-Zionist movement, the Islamic Awakening and Resistance Front on the regional and international stages.
The Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces also noted that the 73-year-old resistance of the oppressed and ardent Palestinian people has now reached its apex of success and the time for the world to witness the most important and glorious referendum in history to determine the fate of Palestine and the return of the Palestinian refugees to their ancestral land is very close.
The top Iranian commander further pointed out that the Palestine issue has shown the true face of the Western countries' claims on human rights, as they have remained indifferent to the Israeli crimes against Palestine.
General Baqeri also pointed to the recent incidents in Israel, saying that the Zionist regime of Israel recently experienced the bitter taste of the deadly and fatal blows from the Resistance Front and the powerful Palestinian Intifada.
"The Intifada (uprising), which has moved forward from 'stone' to 'rocket' and is on the verge of 'deterrence', is more prepared than ever to dismantle the occupiers with the help of the resistance and the Islamic Ummah," he said.
General Baqeri went on to conclude that the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran are spearheading the fight against the enemies of Islam and the Qur'an, under the command of the Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.
