  • Hamas lauds Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei over unwavering support for Palestine

A senior Hamas official has praised Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei for sending a note of support to the Palestinian resistance movement, saying the letter shows Iran will not leave Palestine alone in the face of Israeli and American plots.

Speaking to IRNA in Gaza on Tuesday, Ismail Radwan, a Hamas Spokesperson, thanked Ayatollah Khamenei for his letter of support to Ismail Haniyeh, Head of the Palestinian resistance group’s Political Bureau.

In his letter, Ayatollah Khamenei had assured Palestinian resistance fighters that as ever, Iran always has their back and will not forsake its duty of confronting the occupying Israeli regime’s evil nature.

The Hamas official said the Leader’s stance is indicative of Iran’s clear support for the Palestinian resistance movement, adding, “This shows that we are not alone in the region in a full confrontation with the Zionist entity and the Americans’ project.”

He lauded the Islamic Republic for not wavering in its support of the Palestinian cause against Israeli occupation even despite all the pressure and sanctions it is facing.

The Hamas official added that Iran’s support for Palestine frightens the Israeli regime.
