Iran reaffirms support for Palestinians against Israel’s expansionist policies

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s commitment to the Palestinian cause, saying Tehran will continue to support the oppressed Palestinian nation against the expansionist policies of the “apartheid” Zionist regime.

In a meeting with Secretary General of the Gaza-based Islamic Jihad movement Ziad al-Nakhala in Tehran on Tuesday evening, Amir-Abdollahian also called for unity and cohesion between Islamic countries in the face of the Israeli regime’s acts of aggression against Palestinians.


Referring to the failures of Israel and the US against the Palestinian resistance, the chief Iranian diplomat expressed hopes that the enemies would be further undermined through increased harmony and unity among Islamic countries.


For his part, Nakhala appreciated Iran’s support for the Palestinian people’s resistance and lauded the country’s constructive role in regional developments and its active diplomacy toward other countries.


Iran’s achievements, in fact, belong to the entire Muslim community, he said.


Nakhala also regretted certain efforts in the region to exert pressure on the Islamic Republic and downplay the real threat the Israeli regime poses to the Muslim community, Palestinians in particular.


Late in 2020, four Arab countries – the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco – inked normalization deals with the Israeli regime. The deals, also called the Abraham Accords, were pushed by former US president Donald Trump.


Palestinians and their regional and international supporters have denounced the agreements as a “stab in the back” of the Palestinian cause of liberation from Israeli occupation and aggression.


At the same time, the United States and Israel have garnered support from certain regional states to counter what they call “Iran’s malign activities” in the region.


The Islamic Jihad leader, however, said the endeavors and stances of the Islamic Republic in confronting the world’s hegemonic powers and supporting the oppressed nations against the occupiers and foreign powers herald blessings and strength for the resistant nation of Palestine and weakness for the enemies of the Muslim world.


He underlined the need for further unity between Palestinian groups, saying resistance is the only way to push out the occupiers from Palestine.
