Tehran’s top diplomat also reportedly asserted that the US Mideast Peace Plan rejected by his own government serve as a “chance to unite the Palestinian people together with the Arab and Islamic nations” in their battle against Israel.
The conversation took place in the hours after a tweet by the Islamic Republic’s Supreme leader Ali Khamenei that the launching of an Islamic Jihad is the only path to defeat U.S. President Donald Trump’s so-called “Deal of the Century.” The post read: “What’s the remedy? It is bold resistance by the Palestinian nation & groups in order to force out the Zionist enemy & the U.S. through Jihad. All Muslim nations & the world of Islam must support them too.”
Khamenei also warned “The Palestinian armed organizations will stand & continue to resist. Fortunately, this resistance in W Asia is not limited to Palestine & encompasses a vast area & will grow daily,” while underscoring that “Iran considers it its duty to support Palestinians & will help them in any way it can.”
