Top commander: Countdown starts for shift in West Bank’s struggling model

TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri announced that the Palestinians in the West Bank have started shifting their anti-occupation strategy against Israel to armed resistance.

“The countdown has started for a change in the model of confrontation in the West Bank,” General Jazzayeri said on Monday.

He noted that as the ongoing war in Gaza has been prolonged, the Palestinians have been forced to resort to new battle techniques and methods against Israel.

General Jazzayeri reiterated that the geography of the occupied territories is such that it brings the possibility of confrontation of the Zionists with Palestinian warriors to a minimum.

He noted that the negotiations between the Palestinians and Israel would not produce desirable results or restore the righteous rights of the oppressed Palestinian nation.

“The Palestinian people, specially the youth, resistance forces and warriors have valuable experiences in fighting the Zionist enemy and through the spread and expansion of more serious fighting in the occupied territories, the usurpers and occupiers will have no option other than leaving these holy occupied territories,” General Jazayeri said.

Last week, General Jazayeri said that the type of struggle in the West Bank should change so that the world will see serious withdrawal of the occupiers.

He noted that the West Bank has high potentials for confrontation with the occupiers, and said, “This capability accompanied by other power elements available to the main owners of the Palestinian territories can return the violated rights of the Palestinians to them.”

General Jazayeri reiterated that Iran supports resistance in the region and it will do its best to get back the righteous rights of the oppressed people of the world, specially those in the region.

He pointed to the silence of the Arab leaders over the savage massacre of the Palestinians by Israel, and said, “The region would not have definitely been facing so much turmoil and chaos if the treacherous and dependent leaders of the region had not existed.”

General Jazayeri further blasted the rulers of certain Arab states, complaining that the Arab reactionary leaders have been acting on behalf of the US and Britain for tens of years.

He said that many of the international bodies established after the World War II have been shaped in line with the objectives of the hegemonic powers and unfortunately those organizations have lacked the necessary and proper efficiency, adding, “Accordingly, some international organizations, specially the UN General Assembly, are to be blamed for global turmoil, wars and massacres.”

In July, 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.

In relevant remarks also last week, 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.

“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.

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.
