Iran: Speaker commends Islamic Jihad on victory in latest Gaza war
Parliament Speaker Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf has commended the Palestinian resistance group Islamic Jihad on achieving an honorable victory in the latest confrontation with the Israeli regime.
Qalibaf made the remarks on Wednesday during a telephone call with the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Secretary General Ziad al-Nakhala.
He hailed the Gaza-based resistance group as one of the “most effective” resistance movements fighting the apartheid Israeli regime.
The Speaker expressed condolences with Nakhala over the martyrdom of the group’s commanders while commending it for its victory in the face of the occupying regime.
“The Islamic Republic has stood by the Palestinian nation and the Palestinian Islamic resistance under all circumstances and with all its might,” the top parliamentarian asserted.
The resistance leader, for his part, expressed gratitude to the Islamic Republic for his unwavering support of the Palestinian nation’s resistance against the Zionist regime.
Nakhala said the Zionist regime "was forced to request a ceasefire and accept the Islamic Jihad’s conditions.”
He also noted how the resistance’s retaliatory rockets delivered blows to the occupying regime “in the depth of the occupied territories".
"The Islamic Jihad showed during the recent battle that it can withstand a great and drawn-out war with the occupying regime and deliver heavy blows to them (the Zionists)," he said in the call.
