Tehran, May 2, IRNA – Secretary for the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani stressed Iran’s firm support for resistance movement in Gaza and for the continuation of dispatching foodstuffs and medical items to the besieged territory.
In a meeting with the Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement Ramadan Abdullah here on Monday, he praised the resistance of the Palestinian nation against occupiers and said all advocates of the Palestinian cause worldwide now share the view that the only way to victory and restoration of the Palestinians’ rights was to rely on people’s determination to continue Islamic resistance.
He further said that Israel was the strategic partner of terrorist and Takfiri groups and provided arms, medical and intelligence assistance to them in massacring Muslims and creating conflicts in Islamic countries.
He further commented on the propaganda by the media and press affiliated to the Zionist regime regarding the nuclear agreement between Iran and the six world powers and said the deal is a brilliant example of Iran soft power in confronting the hegemonic powers and multiplied Tehran’s might in defending the ideals of the Islamic Revolution.
Abduallah also met with the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei on Sunday.
During the meeting, the Leader said that the US-led West is trying to control the region by large-scale war against Islam.
“The large-scale war which is currently underway in the region is the continuation of a war that started against the Islamic Republic of Iran 37 years ago and in this confrontation the issue of Palestine is the main and pivotal issue; the Islamic Republic of Iran will continue the duty of supporting Palestine as it has done in the past,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
