If the ISIL cult had been a revolutionary group and a defender of Sunni Muslims as it claims to be, it would have now used its power, weapons and money alongside Hamas and the Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian resistance movements, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, Iran’s deputy foreign minister for Arab and African affairs, said on Sunday.
The terrorist group, however, has declared that it would not do anything to support the Sunni Palestinians oppressed by the Tel Aviv regime, Amir-Abdollahian added.
“The brutal attacks of the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank and the indifference of self-proclaimed advocacy groups and ISIL proved that they are enforcers of the policies dictated by Tel Aviv and apply their power and arms only against Muslims and the strength of the Islamic states,” he said.
The deputy foreign minister went on to stress that the Islamic Republic strongly defends the resistance of both Shia and Sunni Muslims against the Israeli regime.
Israel has been pounding targets in Gaza since it started its latest wave of attacks on the blockaded enclave on July 8. Palestinian sources say more than 166 Palestinians have been killed and over 1,100 injured during the six-day attacks.
People in Iran, the United States, Jordan, Tunisia, Turkey, France, Indonesia, Britain and several other countries have taken to the streets, calling for a halt to Israel’s deadly attacks.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that the Tel Aviv regime will not stop its attacks on the Gaza Strip and that “no international pressure will prevent us” from attacking the besieged territory.
