The head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) said that the Palestinians are “not alone” in their struggle against Israel.
Major General of the Iranian Armed Forces IRGC, Hossein Salami, at a meeting with a representative of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, said that Israel would “pay a high price” for airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.
About this reports Al Jazeera agency.
Salami emphasized that the reaction of Palestine shows that a “new page” in the confrontation has begun. “Palestinian resistance today is stronger than in the past,” he said.
Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs also condemned Israel’s “cruel attack” on Gaza.
Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi said that Israel “once again demonstrated to the world its occupying and aggressive nature.”
Earlier, Israel accused Iran of supplying weapons to Palestinian militants in Gaza.
As reported, Israel on Friday launched an operation against “Islamic Jihad” after several days of tension on the border with Gaza. One of the leaders of this organization, Khaled Mansour, was killed during an airstrike.
The Gaza Ministry of Health reported that 15 people were killed and more than 100 were injured as a result of the Israeli bombardment.
Instead, Palestinian militants launched massive rocket attacks on Israel.
We will remind, Israel from the morning of August 6 continued to attack Islamic Jihad terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip as part of its operation “Dawn”.
