Leader Calls for Iranian Students' Vigilance against Global Arrogance's plots.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the country's university students to be watchful of the plots hatched by the arrogant powers against Iran.

"Iranian students should stay vigilant towards enemies' media hype against Iran," Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Iranian university students and academicians in Tehran on Saturday evening.

Iran's Supreme Leader said that the enemies of Iran have spent huge amounts of money to wage massive media campaign against Iran with the aim of undermining the country's strong points and exaggerating its certain negative points in order to create disappointment among people and the youth in particular.

"There are only two ways to end Iran's struggle against world arrogant powers; either to become strong enough or to lose true identity of the Islamic Republic," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

He pointed to an example of the enemies' media campaign against Iran, and said, "The silence of foreign media vis-a-vis huge presence of people in Iran and other countries to mark the International Quds Day (July 1) is a clear example."

Iran's Supreme Leader said that the demonstrations to mark the International Quds Day on Friday which was a very hot day and people were all fasting is truly a unique and unprecedented phenomenon which was not properly covered by foreign media while they would make exaggerations, if they found a negative point.

"The crucial and inevitable struggle of the Iranian nation with the arrogant powers front started when Iranians decided to be independent and make progress by relying on themselves which was against the interests of the world's domineering powers," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Millions of Iranians took to the streets in all Iranian cities across the country on the International Quds Day on Friday to voice support for the Palestinian nation against the Israeli regime.

Iranians across the country, including in the capital Tehran, alongside other people around the world are holding massive anti-Israel rallies on the last Friday of Ramadan in opposition to the continued occupation of the Palestinian land by Israel.

The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.

International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel's occupation of Beit-ul-Muqaddas. Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and especially in Iran.
