Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said enemies have been using various tools to deal blows to the Iranian nation and the Islamic establishment in the course of the latest developments in the country.
"During the events of the past several days, Iran's enemies, using the various tools at their disposal, including money, weapons, politics, and security apparatus, have allied [with one another] to create problems for the Islamic establishment," the Imam said on Tuesday.
Imam Khamenei, however, described "the spirit of courage, sacrifice and faith" in the Iranian nation as an obstacle in the way of the enemy.
The Imam made the remarks during an address to a weekly meeting with a number of martyrs' families.
Imam Khamenei referred to the woeful situation besetting certain West Asian and North African countries, which have been the target of foreign invasion.
The Imam commemorated the sacrifices made by Iranian soldiers who fought and lost their lives during the 1980-88 war with Iraq.
Had the enemy found its way into Iran during the eight-year war, "they would have had no mercy and a situation considerably worse than that of Libya and Syria would have been created for Iran," Imam Khamenei concluded.
