In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful

[The religious authority] confirms its backing and support of its dear believers in the armed forces and urges them to be patient and firm in the face of the aggressors. May Allah have mercy on the righteous martyrs and give the wounded ones a speedy recovery, Allah is the one who listens and answers.
