FM Zarif: Iran to Continue Support for Palestinian Nation
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a phone conversation with Secretary-General of the Islamic Jihad Movement Ziad al-Nakhalah underlined Tehran's continued support for the Palestinian people in their struggle against Israel.
The phone talks were held on Wednesday during Zarif's visit to Syria and after meeting with President Bashar al-Assad and his Syrian counterpart Faisal Mekdad.
In the telephone conversation with Nakhaleh, who is in Beirut, Zarif stressed the continued support of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the Palestinian people and resistance.
The top Iranian diplomat praised the patience and resistance of the Palestinian people and stressed Iran's readiness to support the Palestinian people and the resistance.
Al-Nakahalah, for his part, expressed his appreciation to the Islamic Republic of Iran for its continued support.
In relevant remarks on Wednesday, Zarif said that the recent missile attacks by the Palestinian resistance groups against Israel proved the fragility of the regime's Iron Dome.
Zarif made the remarks in Damascus in a meeting with the leaders of a number of Palestinian groups.
He added that claims made on impenetrable nature of Israel’s air defense were system dubbed as "iron dome" have obviously proven all hollow and falsehood.
Zarif added that the brutalities of the Zionist regime, particularly at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and their efforts aimed at Judaizing the mosque’s entire neighborhood were met with the braveries of the Palestinian women and men in defense of their own territories.
The Islamic world is very proud of those braveries; condemns the past two days’ criminal acts of Israel, and the heroic response of the resistance groups proved that the claims that the Iron Dome is impenetrable were hollow lies, he said.
Zarif, meanwhile, reiterated that the ongoing developments also proved that the trend of naturalizing ties with the Zionist regime is a policy against the Palestinian people and the Islamic world.
The Iranian minister told the Palestinian leaders that during the course of the past few days in collaboration with the Turkish officials and those of some other Islamic countries efforts were made to make the international community sensitive about this issue.
