    TRANSCRIPT: OMAR AMLIN:"With the (indistinct) of the enemy's military campaign among Eritrean towns, the revolutions undertook a temporary withdrawal from its position, from the towns to the rural areas. Undoubtedly, this was drawn to foil the enemy's plan to exhaust, weaken and liquidate the revolution's armed forces. We see this as a fundamental failure on the part of the enemy to exhaust, to execute its futile plan, objective for cruising our revolution. Sixth in the name of our people, we would like to compare the victory of the Iranian people's revolution against the Shah's regime, which was completely tied to the imperialist and various regimes. This was a(indistinct) regime, belonging to Zionest state of Israel, who are serving as the main tool of the imperialists in their suppression and domination of the Arab world."
