TEHRAN (AIPFF) – Ammar Popular Film Festival Press Conference was held in Turquzabad – the village that the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, alleged as Iran’s secret nuclear warehouse at the recent UN General Assembly session.
According to a … report, the ninth annual Ammar Popular Film Festival Press Conference was held in the house of an Iran-Iraq war martyr in Tehran’s Turquzabad village. Photos of the village were previously demonstrated by the Israeli PM, Netanyahu, at the UN General Assembly session to claim the existence of secret nuclear facilities in Iran. Present at the press conference were the film festival’s directors.
Referring to Netanyahu’s allegations against Iran at the UN General Assembly, the film festival’s secretary, Nader Talebzadeh, said: “Netanyahu is accustomed to falsification and lies; however, we are as well responsible to expose those lies.”
“The biggest lie revolves around the 9/11 attacks,” Talebzadeh said. “US Government’s false claims about its plotters are uncovered as more artistic works are made about the subject. Netanyahu’s lies about the village, Turquzabad, is similar to the 9/11 lies.”
The head of the policy-making council of the festival, Vahid Jalili, said: “Last year, Ammar Film Festival’s screening center in Gaza, Palestine, was hit by Zionist airstrikes; however, our friends in Gaza have stated that they are determined to hold more spectacular screenings this year. Ammar Festival films will as well be screened in Syria, this year.”
“Our sources of power are the martyr families,” Jalili added. “Wherever there is a martyr house, that place is a source of power and resistance against world tyrants and arrogance.”
Addressing the Israeli PM, Jalili said: “Mr. Netanyahu! This is Iran’s Turquzabad village. We have arrived at this often-neglected village so that you can witness the fact that Iran’s centrifuges are the country’s martyr mothers and families. They are the true sources who add to the country’s power.”
“This press conference is another witness to Iran’s support for the Palestinian nation,” he added. “Perhaps we will see the photos of this press conference in the hands of the child-murderer regime’s PM at the upcoming year’s UN General Assembly session.”
Mahdi Parizadeh, a member of the Turquazabad Village Council said: “On behalf of the Turquazabad residents and martyr families, I would like to announce that from this year onwards, a precious hand-woven Persian rug, woven by the Turquazabad villagers, will be awarded to the winners of Ammar Popular Film Festival’s “Death to America” selection, which revolves around anti-imperialistic films.”
At the end of the press conference, a number of the present journalists and Ammar Film Festival directors visited the carpet cleaning facility whose photos were demonstrated at the UN General Assembly session by the Israeli PM, Netanyahu, and centered upon which, he had stated baseless claims against Iran.
Ammar Film Festival is held annually in Tehran and different parts of Iran, at December 30, in commemoration of December 30 pro-government demonstrations of 2009.
