Basij commander: No limitations for Iran’s aids to Palestinians

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of Basij (volunteer) Force Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi underlined that there is no limit for Iran’s humanitarian and other type assistance to the Palestinian people who are under the Israeli attacks.

“The Iranian nation’s aids to the Palestinian people recognizes no boundary and whatever they need, it will be included in our aids,” Naqdi said in the Northern city of Rasht on Tuesday.

“As Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) has stressed, we are fully ready to provide any health and hygiene aid as much as the ground is prepared; the Iranian nation is also ready to supply the Palestinians with food stuff and arms aid,” he added.

Naqdi stressed that the Muslim world is today ready for the annihilation of the Zionist regime and spares no efforts and aids to this end while standing united.

In relevant remarks yesterday, Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari underlined his forces’ readiness to support Palestinian resistance groups in their fight against the Israeli regime.

“We are ready to support the Palestinian resistance in different dimensions,” Jafari told reporters in Tehran on Monday.

“When speaking about defending the Muslims, Shiites and Sunnis are of no difference to us, and our devotion and dedication goes to all the Muslim world and the oppressed” he added.

Jafari underlined that unity among Shiites and Sunnis will soon annihilate the Zionist regime and “we are ready for that day”.

Meantime, he praised the resistance shown by the Palestinian groups, and said, “The Gaza war displayed that the power of the Resistance (front) has no end and has been institutionalized.”

“This power is growing; massive launch of missiles, defusing and repelling the enemy’s ground offensive and upgrading the Palestinians’ threshold of tolerance all testify to this increased power ( of the Palestinian resistance groups),” the IRGC top general said.

Iran has on many occasions helped the Palestinian nation in its fight against the Israeli occupation of their lands.

In July, the Iranian Red Crescent Society announced readiness to dispatch humanitarian aid, and rescue and relief equipment to the oppressed Palestinian people in Gaza who have been under Israel’s brutal attacks.

A few days ago and following first-time remarks by Ayatollah Khamenei, a large number of Iranian Army and IRGC Commanders underlined the necessity for all Islamic countries to supply weapons and military tools and equipment to the Palestinians to help them defend themselves against the Israeli attacks.

“This is the duty of the Muslim world to obey the order of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution and arm the Palestinian people so that a powerful response will be given to the Zionist regime,” Commander of the Army Ground Force Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told FNA during the International Quds Day rallies in Tehran last Friday.

He said that the operational capacities of resistance groups in the region have made the Zionist regime desperate, and added, “The Zionist regime will not sit to the negotiating table unless the language of force is exercised on them and we have witnessed that the rockets fired by the Palestinians have created such a strange fear among the Zionists and they are now after truce.”

His remarks came after Ayatollah 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 in July.

Also last Friday, Lieutenant Commander of the 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.”

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 29 consecutive days, killing at least 1,865 people and injuring nearly 10,000 others.
