Iran will never hesitate to support Gaza, Palestine: Leader

Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran has a fixed policy of providing support to Palestine and the people in Gaza who have been suffering from brutal Israeli aggression for nearly six months.

Imam Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in a meeting in Tehran on Tuesday with a Palestinian resistance movement Hamas delegation led by the group’s politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran would never hesitate to support the Palestinian cause and the oppressed and resilient people of Gaza,” he said.

The Leader praised the people of Gaza for the “historic patience” they have shown in the face of Israeli aggression, saying the patience has become a source of dignity and pride for Islam and the Muslims.

“The huge phenomenon of the patience of people in Gaza has turned the issue of Palestine into the world’s dominant issue despite the will of the enemy,” he said.

Ayatollah Khamenei also paid tribute to Saleh al-Arouri, a member of the Hamas political bureau, who was assassinated in the Lebanese capital Beirut in January in a drone attack attributed to the Israeli regime.

In the meeting, Haniyeh thanked the Iranian government and the nation for the support they have provided to the Palestinian cause and the people in Gaza during the ongoing war.

He also briefed Ayatollah Khamenei about the latest political developments surrounding the war in Gaza and the situation on the ground.

He said the regime of Israel has failed to reach any of the objectives it declared at the beginning of the war in October because of “the exemplary patience and steadfastness” shown by the Palestinian people and resistance groups in Gaza.

Haniyeh arrived in Tehran earlier on Tuesday hours after the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) adopted a resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire between the group and Israel in Gaza.

The senior Palestinian resistance leader said after a meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian that the UNSC resolution was a sign of “unprecedented isolation” for the Israeli regime.
