Beirut, July 5, IRNA - Vice Head of the Supreme Islamic Shia Council, Sheikh Ali Khatib described the US and its allies’ pressures on Arab and Muslim nations and also its cruel sanctions against Iran, Syria and Resistance as a new colonial war.  

According to Lebanese media, Khatib made the remarks addressing Friday prayer speech in Libbaya Mosque.

He called for vigilance, patience, wisdom and also commitment to Muslims’ principles and most importantly unity and resistance for standing against new colonial war.

Palestine is an Arabic-Islamic country with Quds as its capital, he said, adding that Palestinian refugees’ returning to Palestine is the only solution to the Palestinian issue.

He went on to say that the US cruel sanctions against Iran is doomed to failure and will not make Iran set aside its support of Resistance and the Palestinian nation.
