The Ravayat-e Fath Foundation — a Tehran-based cultural center sponsored by the Iranian regime’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), a US-designated terrorist organization — plans to produce films about Iran’s unprecedented direct attack on Israel last weekend, according to a new report.

Ali Moqavasaz, the head of the institution, said the cultural center wants to commemorate April 13 as a “historic day” by organizing a festival and promoting artworks that glorify the Iranian strike against Israel, Iran International reported. He added that while the foundation has not found a filmmaker ready to produce a film about the assault on Israel, the cultural center is serious about wanting to make movies highlighting the attack. Moqavasaz also vowed that Revayat-e Fath will produce films about IRGC commanders.

Iran fired more than 300 drones and ballistic and cruise missiles at Israel last Saturday, marking the first time that the Islamic Republic has launched a direct military assault against the Jewish state. Most of the missiles and drones were intercepted by Israel and its allies before striking Israeli territory. Only one injury was reported in Israel from the onslaught.

The attack took place less than two weeks after an alleged Israeli airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Syria’s capital of Damascus that killed seven members of the IRGC, including two senior commanders. One of the commanders allegedly helped plan the Hamas terrorist group’s Oct. 7 massacre across southern Israel.

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied involvement in the incident.

“Revayat-e Fath” in Farsi means “the narrative of conquest.” The foundation was named after a series of documentaries produced by pro-government filmmaker and author Morteza Avini about the eight-year war between Iran and Iraq in the 1980s, Iran International noted.

Mohammad Naderi, the former head of the Revayat-e Fath Foundation, criticized artists who supported the nationwide anti-government protests across Iran following the 2022 death of Masha Amini, who died while in the custody of Iran’s morality police. He called the protesting artists “useless figures and celebrities” who “betrayed the government, people and country.”

Israel appeared to respond to Iran’s recent attack with limited military strikes in Iran on Friday.
