TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Quds Force Brigadier General Esmaeil Qaani reaffirmed Iran’s backing for the Palestinian nation in the struggle against the Israeli regime, praising the resistance forces’ successful military confrontation with the Zionist enemy.
In a telephone conversation with Ismail Haniyeh, the chief of the political bureau of Islamic resistance movement Hamas, the IRGC Quds Force commander assured the Palestinian nation and resistance of the Islamic Republic’s continued support in the battle against the Zionist enemy and its relentless acts of aggression against Jerusalem al-Quds and the Gaza Strip.
The Iranian commander also strongly condemned the Zionist occupiers’ brutal crimes against Palestinian people in Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of al-Quds and in Gaza, and lauded the resistance forces’ perfect and successful performance in the face of the Israeli enemy.
For his part, Haniyeh briefed Qaani on the Israeli acts of aggression in Gaza and al-Quds that have killed Palestinian women and children, stressing that the battle in Palestine is a fight involving the whole Islamic Ummah (community).
