Tehran (IP) - Iran’s Judiciary Spokesman says that the Islamic Republic defends real human rights, which is Islamic human rights.

Iran PressIran News: Zabihullah Khodaeian, in his live presser on Tuesday, stated: “Having many laws regarding human rights, Iran always observes human rights, while many other countries violate them, especially women’s rights to vote.”

In further remarks, Khodaeian pointed to the crimes of Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorist group, saying: “Some [group] assassinated 17,000 Iranians in the first days after the Islamic Revolution; Yet they do not have any Special Rapporteur on Human Rights to report and pursue their violations.”

Iran’s Judiciary Spokesman continued: “Some states, like the child-killing Israeli regime, massacre oppressed people with Western-made bombs, but Iran always observes and defends human rights, so it does not need Special Rapporteur on Human Rights.”

While condoling the days of mourning for Prophet Muhammad’s daughter Fatima (AS) and commemorating the martyrs of the Resistance Front, especially the second martyrdom anniversary of Lt. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Khodaeian said: “It takes time to get to know General Soleimani politically, socially, culturally, and militarily.” 

Martyr Soleimani was a symbol of the struggle against the arrogant global powers because he was trained in the humanitarian school of Islam, the spokesman stressed and said wherever the United States stepped in, it sought domination and exploitation. 

The spokesman said that despite being humble, Martyr Soleimani stood powerfully against the arrogant global powers.

General Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) deputy head Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis were assassinated along with their companions in a US drone strike authorized by former President Donald Trump near Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020.

They were highly popular because of their key role in eliminating the US-backed ISIS terrorist group in the region, particularly in Iraq and Syria.

General Soleimani was assassinated by the US while he was in Baghdad at the official invitation of the Iraqi government.
