Palestinian Representative: Crises in Egypt, Syria Serve Israel’s Interests
TEHRAN (Tasnim) - A senior Palestinian figure expressed doubt about the Zionist regime of Israel’s honesty in the so-called peace talks with the Palestinian Authority, and said the ongoing conditions in Syria and Egypt will be in the interests of Israel.
“We call on all Egyptian and Syrian sides to come to the table of negotiation for resolving their countries’ crises," Representative of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement in Iran Nasser Abu Sharif said, adding,"... these conditions will only serve interests of the occupying Zionist regime."
Addressing reporters in a press conference on the verge of the International Quds Day here in Tehran today, Abu Sharif also noted that the purpose of the Palestinian nation's fighting against Israel is to “free the entire territories and the Islamic Ummah (community) from (Zionist) plots”.
In a separate development on July 28, the Iranian Society for the Defense of Palestine Nation (SDPN) held a conference in Tehran to discuss the importance of the International Quds Day.
In 1979, Imam Khomeini, the late founder of the Islamic Republic, designated the last Friday of Ramadan as the International Quds Day, during which Muslims across the world hold rallies to show their solidarity with Palestinians.
