Envoy reiterates Iran’s support for Palestine

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran will remain one of the main supporters of the oppressed people of Palestine, Iran’s Ambassador to Lebanon Qazanfar Roknabadi underlined.

Speaking in an interview with the Lebanese OTV on Wednesday, the Iranian envoy underscored that Tehran is determined to continue extending support for the Palestinian nation, adding that the country has paid the expenses of the support in the past 34 years.

Early in February 2012, Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei categorically denied Iran’s interference in Bahrain, but meantime stressed Iran’s direct involvement in the Palestinian and Lebanese confrontation against Israel, including the Lebanese Summer 2006 33-day resistance against the Zionist regime.

“Wherever Iran interferes, it announces it in a very straightforward manner. For instance, we interfered in confrontations against Israel, which resulted in the (Lebanese) victory in the 33-day war and (Palestinians’ victory in) the 22-day (Gaza) war,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

“In future too, we will support and help everyone who opposes the Zionist regime,” the Leader underscored.

“The Zionist regime is a real cancerous tumor that should be cut and will be cut, God Willing,” Ayatollah Khamenei underscored.
