Commander: Zionist regime merely understands language of force

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said events on the ground have shown that the Zionist regime merely understands the language of force.

“Given the realities that exist with regard to the Zionist regime, we are witnessing that the rockets fired by the Palestinians have made this regime feel much fear, which shows that this fake regime withdraws (from its positions) and sits to the negotiating table by using force,” Pourdastan said on Saturday.

He also stressed the necessity for supplying weapons and military tools and equipment to the Palestinians to help them defend themselves against the Israeli aggression.

“It is the responsibility of all Muslims states and those who are worried about the religion, to arm the people in the West Bank so that the Muslim Palestinian nation can resist against the Zionist regime given the operational capacities that it will achieve (after that),” Pourdastan said.

His remarks came after Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei strongly condemned the recent Israeli attacks on the Palestinians, and underlined that Palestinians should continue their armed struggle against Tel Aviv.

“We believe the West Bank, too, should be armed just like Gaza and those who are interested in the fate of the Palestinians must work in this respect so that the pains and miseries of the Palestinian people will be decreased due to their mighty hands and the weakness of the Zionist enemy,” he underlined on Wednesday.

In relevant remarks on Friday, Lieutenant Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami underlined the continued resistance of the Palestinians against Israeli aggressions, and said no secure place has remained for the Zionists.

“Today, no point in the occupied territories is secure for the Zionists and the 33-day, 22-day and 8-day wars have caused an epic of resistance and today the Palestinian resistance’s missiles are beyond the Zionists’ expectations,” Salami said addressing participants in Tehran’s Friday prayers and after the International Quds Day rallies.

He also predicted that the power balance will change to the benefit of the Muslim world soon in future.

Salami warned the Zionists of Muslims’ tough reaction and response to their crimes, and said, “We will chase you house by house and take revenge for every drop of our martyrs’ blood in Palestine and this is the start of the Muslim nations’ awakening for defeating you.”
