During a meeting with Muhammad Abdul-Sattar al-Sayyid, the Syrian Minister of religious affairs and Syrian religious scholars, Khamenei promised al-Sayyid he would see the day that he would be able “to lead prayers in al-Quds” (Jerusalem).
“I hope that you and we will see the day when you are conducting public prayers in Quds, God willing. We believe that (more…)
Nearly 2,500 Marines landed in Israel on Tuesday as part of a biennial military exercise known as Juniper Cobra.
The Marines, deployed with the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit aboard the amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima, will train with Israeli Defense Forces, as the IDF carries out a series of ballistic missile drills.
