  • President Raeisi slams Israeli aggression, hails Gazans’ resistance

President Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi has slammed the Israeli regime’s aggression and hailed resistance of Palestinians in Gaza that "can accelerate the overthrow of the child-killing regime.”

According to Press TV, he made the remarks on Saturday a day after the deadly Israeli airstrike on a residential area in the besieged Gaza Strip. The strike resulted in the martyrdom of twelve people, including Tayseer al-Jabari, a senior commander of the Islamic Jihad movement, and a five-year-old child.

“By committing last night’s crime, the Zionist regime once again showed its aggressive and occupying conduct to the world, but the resistance of people of Gaza would expedite the fall of this child-killing regime,” Raeisi noted.

The president also denounced the deadly terrorist attack in the Afghan capital Kabul and urged the caretaker Taliban government to identify the criminals and guarantee the Afghans' security.

At least eight people were martyred and 18 others injured in the blast during a community mourning gathering in a Shia residential area in Kabul on Friday afternoon. The Daesh terrorist group has claimed the deadly attack.

‘Zionist entity security deteriorating rapidly’

Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force chief has said the Israeli regime’s security is sharply declining.

“Every day at least 15 operations are conducted against the occupying regime’s positions and that is why they installed barriers even inside the settlements to protect their lives,” Tasnim quoted General Esmail Qa'ani as saying on Saturday.

He added that Palestinian combatants are making arrangements to strike the last blow to the “Zionist regime’s rotting body”.

The Islamic government backs the oppressed Palestinians as it did in the past and the US and the illegal Zionist entity cannot break down their resistance, Qa'ani stated.

The IRGC Chief Commander Hossein Salami has also warned that, “more than 100 thousand missiles are ready to be launched from Lebanon to make a hellfire for the Zionists.”
