Today, not only in Palestine and Lebanon but also the Iraqi and Syrian people admit the Islamic Revolution's influential role and appreciate the Iranian nation in this regard, despite enemy propaganda.
The US should find a way to survive and continue its endangered life, but we are surprised at the enemy's insistence on costly and useless scenarios.
The largest ground operation to date against ISIL insurgents, and after a week of intense fighting, the Iran-led coalition of Iraqi Shia militias and security forces, led by Quds Force General Qasem Soleimani, have retaken large areas of Tikrit. On Tuesday, the coalition forces had recaptured the town of al-Alam on the eastern edge of Tikirit, encircling the city.
Tikrit are “covered with dead bodies of ISIL terrorists.” Earlier, the New York Times reported that ISIL fighters had begun retreating form Tikrit.
The coalition had already blocked ISIL’s positions north, south, and west of Tikrit, and has now completely encircled the city held by ISIL insurgents. The recapture of al-Alam was the immediate goal of the operation, which would be used as the staging ground to enter into Tikrit City. This is a major victory for Soleimani and his forces.
