Leader voices Iran's full support for Palestine

TEHRAN, Jul. 06 (MNA) – In a letter to Head of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei announced that Iran will protect the oppressed Palestinians against the Zionist regime.

As Al MayadeenTV reported, the Leader in this letter underlined that the Islamic Republic will do its best to defend the rights of Palestinians against the occupying Zionists.

“The Islamic Republic, as before, does not stint on any effort to support the oppressed Palestinian people, redress their rights, and also fight off the bogus and usurping Zionist regime’s evil,” the Leader noted.

Iran stays true to the cause in line with its religious and humanitarian duty and also in keeping with the value-based principles of its Islamic Revolution, the letter noted.

Ayatollah Khamenei said he had paid close attention to Haniyeh’s message, expressing gratitude to the Palestinian resistance for its struggle and steadfastness in the face of the American and Israeli regimes.

The resistance’s struggle, the Leader said, has “caused weakness and frustration for them (the US and Israel), and has, on the other hand, awarded esteem and pride to the Muslim nation.”

After suffering “irreparable” defeats in the battleground, the “pitiable enemy” tried furthering its expansionist approach and attempts at violating Palestinians’ rights through laying a siege on the Gaza Strip and subjecting the coastal sliver to economic pressure, Ayatollah Khamenei’s letter read. The Leader was referring to the blockade that the Tel Aviv regime began to impose on Gaza after Hamas came to rule the enclave.

The Palestinian nation’s enemy then tried advancing its goals by way of the negotiation ploy and the so-called plan for peace and reconciliation, the letter added.

The courageous Palestinian nation, however, did not brook their threats and alleged incentives and instead chose the path of “esteem and honor” as before by resorting to wisdom and experience and through its exemplary persistence, Ayatollah Khamenei stated.

The Palestinian nation "will continue down this straight path from now on too,” the Leader noted.

Ayatollah Khamenei finally hoped that alertness, unity, and integrity among the Palestinian people and factions proves effective in negating the enemy’s “sinister plans” and invites “divine victory.”
