‘Resistance Has Never Been Stronger’

TEHRAN -- Iran on Friday praised strong bonds among resistance groups in the West Asia region, stating that the Axis of Resistance has never been more united and stronger than it is today.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always firmly supported Palestine as the most strategic issue of the Muslim world,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani wrote in a tweet published on his Twitter page.
“Iran has prevented the world’s arrogant powers from sidelining the Palestinian issue from international priorities,” he said.
The Palestinians, he said, remain oppressed but powerful and able to defend themselves.
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi held separate meetings with the leaders and commanders of the Palestinian resistance groups as well as Palestinian intellectuals on the second day of his visit to Damascus on Thursday.
Describing Palestine and efforts for the liberation of Al-Quds as the Muslim world’s overriding issue, Raisi said resistance has proved as the only way to confront the occupying regime of Israel and pursue the Muslim world’s goals.
The Iranian president also touched on the waning power of the United States and Israel, stressing that the collapse of the occupying regime is very imminent, the signs of which are evident.
Raisi emphasized the need for unity and solidarity among resistance forces and Muslims in order to expedite the defeat of Israel and liberation of Al-Quds. He said initiatives are now being taken by Palestinian fighters in the field, not defined at the negotiation table.
