Ayatollah Khamenei Pays Tribute to Late Iranian General Firouzabadi

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei sent a message of condolence on the passing away of former chief of staff of the Iranian Armed Forces, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi.

In the message, released on Friday evening, Ayatollah Khamenei, the commander-in-chief of the Iranian military forces, paid tribute to the late general for his valuable struggle.

What follows is the text of the message, published by Khamenei.ir:

“In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

I offer my condolences on the demise of my old colleague, Major General Dr. Sayyid Hasan Firouzabadi (may God bestow mercy upon him), to his respectable wife, children and other family members.

His life was filled with valuable struggle. This included activities of resistance during the time he was a university student in Mashhad to his varied, extensive activities after the victory of the Islamic Revolution. These activities were in important areas such as Jihad Construction (Jihad Sazandegi), in departments affiliated with the Supreme Defense Council, in particular there was also his long period of service as the Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, and finally there was his membership in the Expediency Council. These will serve as spiritual provisions for our diligent, public-spirited brother.

A spirit of devotion, religiosity, uprightness and consistency in remaining faithful to religion and revolutionary action were other salient features that were always a part of this respected brother. Such outstanding qualities will be a source of divine mercy and God’s satisfaction for him, God willing. I ask God, the Almighty, for His mercy and forgiveness for the deceased and patience and calm for his family members.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei
