TEHRAN (Dispatches) -- A Palestinian political party has thanked Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for supporting the Palestinian nation.
The Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, which is affiliated to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) umbrella group, communicated strong appreciation to the Leader’s supportive stance during the recent confrontation.
Ayatollah Khamenei’s “support for the Palestinian resistance provided the youths of this land with the conviction and strength to confront the Zionists,” the party’s Secretary-General Khaled Abdul-Majid said.
He said Ayatollah Khamenei and other Iranian authorities played “an important and active role” in empowering the resistance to the extent that it managed to afflict heavy damage on Israeli forces and illegal settlers.
The occupying regime launched a 12-day war against the Gaza Strip where resistance groups responded with a barrage of improved rockets which caught the Zionists off guard.
Throughout the offensive, the groups fired more than 4,000 rockets towards the occupied territories. The projectiles swept the entire expanse of the territories, many flying as far as Tel Aviv, the holy occupied city of Al-Quds, and even the northern-lying cities of Haifa and Nazareth.
The Zionist regime finally gave in to a ceasefire on Friday after failing to stop the rocket rain on its cities.
The Palestinian official said the Islamic Republic’s support for the Palestinian nation in the face of the Zionist regime’s “organized state terrorism and savage crimes” throughout the Palestinian territories is “a source of pride”.
“The Palestinian nation, all the countries participating in the resistance axis, and all the freedom-seeking people of the world take pride in the great victory,” Abdul-Majid added.
The Islamic Republic is the “real and main supporter” of all resistance groups throughout the world, and also serves as the main guarantor of regional stability and the international Muslim nation’s unity, he said.
The entire Palestinian nation, including all the resistance groups, “declares allegiance” to Ayatollah Khamenei to keep up its resistance and popular struggle against the occupiers until Palestine’s liberation, he said.
Gaza’s resistance movements, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, have already voiced vociferous gratitude to the Leader for Iran’s unmatched support.
