Leader: Palestine’s ultimate victory to occur in the “not too distant future”

Khamenei.ir – Mr. Ziad al-Nakhala– secretary general of the Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine– and his entourage met with Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, today morning December 31, 2018.

The leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei insisted during a meeting with Mr. Ziad al-Nakhala –Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine: Palestine will last strongly, and by God’s assistant, the Palestinian nation’s ultimate victory will come true in the near future.

Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out a clear equation regarding Palestine and said: according to this equation, your resistance will result in your victory, and if you do not resist you will not be victorious. But thank God, the people of Palestine have resisted until now in the fight against the Zionist regime, and have been victorious.

The leader of the Islamic Revolution added: the victory of the Palestinian people in recent years, does not mean being able to form a government in Tel Aviv, which will come true with God’s grace, rather the main victory is the fact that the Zionist regime, which Arab armies could not defeat, was brought to its knees by the Palestinian people and the resistance, and by God’s will, you will achieve greater victories.

Ayatollah Khamenei reminded his audience: The Zionist regime that during the two last wars against the Resistance groups, at one instance after 22 days, and at another instance, after 8 days requested cease-fire, in the most recent conflict, requested cease-fire only after 48 hours. This means the Zionist Regime has been brought to knees.

The leader of the Islamic Revolution regarded these events as very important, and as divine blessings, reiterating: The reason for the Palestinians’ consecutive victories in recent years lies in resistance. Thus, in the future, as far as the resistance exists, the Zionist Regime will continue to decline.

Referring to the extreme pressures put on the Islamic Republic of Iran by the Front of Arrogance, Ayatollah Khamenei stated: These pressures can never make us give up our divine, religious and logical duty in supporting Palestine.

Further on in his speech, the leader of the Islamic Revolution praised resistance and fightings of Palestinian Islamic Jihad and asked God the Elevated to bless Dr. Ramadan Abdullah –the former secretary general of the Islamic Jihad–with rapid recovery.

During this meeting, Mr. Ziad al-Nakhala –Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement in Palestine– reported on the latest evolutions in the usurped Palestine and on high capacities and preparations of the resistance groups, saying: Despite all the pressures, the people of Gaza are standing against the Zionist Regime and the so-called Deal of the Century plot, a salient example of which is continuing the weekly protests ‘Friday of Return’.

He also pointed out the recent victory of the Islamic resistance in Palestine against the Zionist regime and this regime’s request for a cease fire after 48 hours and added: Today, the abilities and power of the Islamic resistance in Palestine is more than ever, so that if war breaks out, Tel Aviv and all other towns and settlements of the Zionist regime will be within reach of thousands of missiles of the Resistance.
