IRGC has issued a statement to condemn execution of Sheikh Mohammad Baqir Nimr al-Nimr by Saudi Arabia, Mehr News reported.
The statement published on IRGC official website said that the execution was a prologue to Saudi Arabian regime downfall and a behavior very similar to ISIL atrocities.
“Definitely, Muslims will react to this atrocity and violence through consolidation of unity, which will contribute to the resistance ideals of liberation of the holy Quds.”
“Saudi regime will definitely pay heavy prices for the execution of Sheikh Nimr as unabashed and rash conduct; however, international organizations of human rights and freedom of expression should wisely abandon double standard in dealing with this issue and take clear positions in condemnation of the execution as its responsibility,” the statement suggested.
