According to Caspian International News Agency, the Supreme Leader’s representative and the governor of Gilan issued a joint message on the occasion of Mordad 26 the anniversary of liberated captives entrance into Islamic Iran. The message reads as follows:
The Islamic Iran endured the difficult period of imposed war with dignity and honor, the country which its Muslim men and women bravely confronted enemies for a better future…the country which its people sacrificed their lives for the revolution by martyrs, disabled veterans and liberated captives.
On Mordad 26, our Islamic homeland witnessed the presence of people who set foot on their Islamic homeland soil after enduring torture during their captivities, and turned this historic day into one of the most memorable days of the Islamic revolution history.
Peace be upon the brave liberated captives which have been the source of blessing and proudness from the first days of coming back to their homeland.
We celebrated Mordad 26, the anniversary of the honorable entrance of the dear liberated captives and we hope that all the people who have sacrificed for the Islamic Iran will be healthy and successful with the help of God and with the blessings of Imam Mahdi (aj).
