“There is no doubt that the Zionist terrorists’ move will strengthen the resolve of the Palestinian nation in the all-out resistance in order to liberate all occupied (Palestinian) lands and reject the mirage of West’s reconciliation,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham said on Thursday.
On Thursday, Israeli fighter jets struck several targets in the city of Rafah, situated 30 kilometers South of Gaza City, injuring several Palestinians.
Israeli warplanes also hit several locations in the Gaza Strip on Wednesday. There were no reports of casualties.
However, on Tuesday, at least three Palestinians were killed in an Israeli airstrike on the Southern Gaza Strip. The Islamic Jihad said in a statement that the three killed were members of the movement, and an Israeli assassination drone targeted them as they “resisted an Israeli military incursion” into Rafah city.
The secretary general of the Islamic Jihad Movement said on Thursday that Palestinian resistance fighters will not lay down their arms until all occupied Palestinian territories are liberated.
“Our weapons of resistance…are not for rent. Our weapons are for the sake of Palestine and we shall not lay them down until we achieve the goal of liberating Palestine,” Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shalah said.
