Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Major General Hossein Salami congratulated the Palestinian nation on achieving a major victory over the Zionist regime, expressing Iran’s readiness to provide the resistance forces with whatever help necessary in any field.
The IRGC commander made the remarks on Friday night in separate telephone conversations with Ismail Haniyeh and Ziyad al-Nakhalah, leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad resistance movements.
Speaking to Haniyeh, Major General Salami praised the latest achievement made by the Palestinian resistance groups, saying, “Iran is ready to provide all kinds of assistance to the Palestinian nation and resistance forces in all areas and it will spare no effort in this regard.”
Haniyeh, for his part, deeply appreciated Iran’s firm stance on the Palestinians’ rights in various political and field areas as well as its standing alongside the Palestinians and resistance groups, Press TV reported.
“The Palestinian resistance created a heroic epic and defeated the Zionist bullying,” he said. “The balance of power has changed on the battlefield, and the Palestinian nation across the country and even abroad have rejected the occupation as well as its policies and actions.”
During the call with Nakhalah, Major General Salami stressed that the IRGC “will never leave the Palestinian nation alone.”
The Islamic Jihad leader, for his part, thanked General Qassem Suleimani, the former commander of the IRGC’s Quds Force, for his efforts to achieve and consolidate the resistance victory. General Soleimani, Iran’s legendary anti-terror commander, was assassinated in a US drone strike near Baghdad International Airport last year.
‘Israe’l launched a bloody bombing campaign on Gaza on May 10 after harassment of Palestinians in Jerusalem al-Quds and attempts to steal their lands in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of the city.
The occupying regime announced a unilateral ceasefire on Friday, which was accepted by the Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza with Egyptian mediation.
According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, 248 Palestinians were killed in the Israeli offensive, including 66 children and 39 women, and at least 1,910 were injured.
During the fighting, Gaza-based resistance factions fired rockets into the occupied territories in response to the Israeli bloodshed.
