A senior Iranian military commander says Iran is ready to fully support the “growing” Palestinian resistance movement.
“We are prepared to support the Palestinian resistance in various aspects. In defending Muslims, we recognize no distinction between Shias and Sunnis,” commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari said on Monday.
He added that the Gaza conflict indicated that the power of Palestinian resistance is “endless and growing.”
The IRGC commander further emphasized that the number of rockets launched into Israel and the Palestinian fighters’ ability in confronting the Israeli ground invasion is proof to the Palestinian resistance’s growing power.
He added that the events in the Gaza Strip and Iraq are the result of the joint US-Israeli policies.
“The Zionist regime [of Israel] will collapse soon as a result of the unity among Shia and Sunni Muslims and we are ready for that day,” Jafari pointed out.
Medical sources say at least 1,822 people, including 400 children, have been killed and over 9,400 injured since the Israeli regime began its offensive against the Gaza Strip on July 8.
Palestinian resistance fighters are continuing their rocket attacks against Israeli cities in retaliation for the Tel Aviv regime’s relentless onslaught on the blockaded Gaza Strip.
The Israeli military says 64 Israeli soldiers have been killed in the four-week conflict, but Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, puts the fatalities at more than 150.
