TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Brigadier General Massoud Jazzayeri underscored the necessity for arming the Palestinians in the West Bank, saying that the move would lead to Israel’s collapse.
“The continued war in Gaza will accelerate arming the West Bank and annihilation of the occupiers,” Jazayeri said in Tehran on Sunday.
“The holy Quds occupiers’ fear from arming the people and the resistance movement in the West Bank shows how deeply Tel Aviv is vulnerable to the start of a new phase of (Palestinians’) fight and resistance,” he added.
Jazzayeri said during the past decade and after the Zionist regime’s defeats in the 33-day, 8-day and 22-day wars in Lebanon and Gaza and the recent war against the Palestinians, the world public opinion has become aware of this bitter reality that the usurper Israeli regime is a cancerous tumor.
His remarks came after Ayatollah Khamenei strongly condemned the recent Israeli attacks on the Gaza people, and underlined that Palestinians, including those in the West Bank, 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 in relevant remarks earlier this month, Jazayeri underlined that the Palestinians in the West Bank must shift their anti-occupation strategy against Israel to armed resistance, specially following the recent events in the Gaza Strip.
“The type of struggle in the West Bank should change so that the world will see serious withdrawal of the occupiers,” Jazayeri said on Tuesday.
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.”
