TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US-Israeli plot against Palestinians called “the deal of the century” is doomed to failure and will never be realized.
In a speech in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei expressed “deep heartfelt gratitude” to the Iranian people for their massive participation in the rallies across the country, marking the International Quds Day, in support of the Palestinian people.
The Leader made the remarks at Imam Khomeini’s Mosalla Grand Prayer Grounds after leading Eid al-Fitr’s prayers, a festive rite celebrating the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“The strong and firm presence of the people in this great movement has major impacts on the global policies and wills of the Iranian nation’s enemies and will disrupt their calculations,” Ayatollah Khamenei stated.
The Leader pointed to the US conspiracy called “the deal of the century” and said the betrayal of some Muslim countries, including Bahrain and Saudi Arabia has provided the grounds for “the evil plot”.
Ayatollah Khamenei also denounced the Manama regime for agreeing to host a conference later this month, where Washington plans to unveil parts of the deal.
The deal of the century will never materialize, the Leader noted, expressing gratitude to some Arab countries and the Palestinian groups that have voided their opposition to the deal.
Last month, the White House announced that Bahrain will host a workshop on June 25-26 in the capital Manama.
All Palestinian groups, along with the United Nations and several other countries, have boycotted the event.
Iranian people took part in countrywide demonstrations on Friday to mark the International Quds Day, reaffirm support for Palestine, and condemn the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.
This year’s rallies were held under the slogan “En Route for Quds” in the Arab countries.
Each year, the International Quds Day is celebrated on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
The event’s raison d’être is renewing support for the Palestinians and denunciation of Israel.
