IRGC Quds Commander: Axis of Resistance to Remain United With Gaza Fighters
TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Quds Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Esmayeel Qa'ani assured the military wing of Hamas in the Gaza Strip of the solidarity of the Axis of Resistance with Palestinian fighters.
“Your brothers in the axis of al-Quds and the resistance are united with you, and they will not allow the enemy to reach its dirty goals in Gaza and Palestine,” General Qa'ani said in a message.
The Axis of Resistance refers to an alliance among Iran, Syria and anti-Israeli groups in Lebanon, Iraq and Yemen.
General Qa'ani, meantime, hailed Operation al-Aqsa Storm by Palestinian resistance fighters on October 7 which caught Israel off guard and shattered that regime’s myth of superiority in everything from military to intelligence power.
"You created a great epic called the al-Aqsa Storm, which was accomplished with the help of God and by the holy fighters of the al-Qassam Brigades and the resistance in Gaza,” he added.
Following the multi-front attack by Hamas, Israel carried out heavy bombardment across the Gaza Strip, killing at least 12,000 Palestinians, including at least 5,000 children and over 3,300 women, and wounding over 30,000 others, and levelling entire neighbourhoods. Tel Aviv has also imposed a "complete siege" on Gaza, cutting off food, electricity, fuel and water supplies. The move has plunged the blockaded territory into a humanitarian crisis.
The Gaza Health Ministry has confirmed that the healthcare system in the besieged territory has “totally collapsed due to the Israeli war”.
The Gaza Health Ministry has confirmed that the healthcare system in the besieged territory has “totally collapsed due to the Israeli war”. Dozens of hospitals and tens of medical centers are out of service due to Israeli raids, according to the enclave's health ministry. The UN agencies have also warned that the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip is "catastrophic", calling for more international help as conditions deteriorate in the densely populated besieged enclave.
Tehran says the history of the apartheid regime is full of assassinations, massacre, torture and killing of Palestinian kids, and described Tel Aviv regime's atrocities and massacre of Palestinian women and children as indicative of the destitute of Zionists. Iranian officials say the Tel Aviv regime has been struggling for more than 70 years to exit its identity crisis which has been mixed with genocide, plunder, forced displacement and scores of other inhumane moves.
