Hamas chief in Tehran for talks after UN adopts ceasefire resolution

Hamas chief Ismail Haniyeh is in Tehran for meetings with senior Iranian officials, just a day after the UN Security Council adopted a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

The leader of the Palestinian resistance movement arrived on Tuesday afternoon and immediately sat down for talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

“Examining the latest situation of the war in Gaza and the ongoing aggression of the Zionist regime against the people of the Gaza Strip and the West Bank are among the most important agendas of the trip and the talks between the officials of the two sides,” official news agency IRNA reported.

Since the start of Israel’s military aggression and genocide against the Palestinians, the Islamic Republic has used all its diplomatic power to stop the war and send immediate humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.

Political analysts believe the visit is of great importance as it takes place just one day after the ceasefire resolution was adopted.

It is the second visit of the head of the political bureau of Hamas to Iran since the outbreak of the Israeli war on Gaza in October.

Haniyeh met with Ayatollah Khamenei in recent days: Hamas official

A Hamas official says the group’s top man Haniyeh went to Iran recently to meet with Ayatollah Khamenei.

Haniyeh, who is based in the Qatari capital of Doha, met Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in November.

Iran is a key supporter of Hamas although it has repeatedly declared that groups operating within the Axis of Resistance, including Hamas, act independently when it comes to policy-making and military performance.

Resistant groups in Iraq, Lebanon, and Yemen have been supporting Hamas in its ongoing fight against the Israeli regime by launching attacks on Israeli interests or by targeting US military forces in the region.

Israel unleashed its war on Gaza on October 7 after Hamas carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed more than 32,300 Palestinians and injured over 74,000 others.
