Bfnews: President Ahmadinejad made the remarks addressing the attendees in the 13th martyrdom anniversary of Brigadier-General Ali Sayad Shirazi, who was chief-of-staff of the Iranian forces during the 8-year defensive war against Iraqi dictator Saddam, and some 110 other martyred commander of the sacred defense.
He said on Monday that the martyrs are manifestation of love, devotion, and sacrifice, adding that the Iranian nation and all freedom-loving nations in the world would surely continue the determined path towards conquering peaks of victory and glory.
Some of officials and army commanders attended the ceremony to commemorate the martyrs.
In 1999, General Shirazi was assassinated, just outside his house when he was going to work. The Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), better known as 'Hypocrites', claimed responsibility for the assassination.
