Liberation of Palestinian Territories a Muslim Duty

EghtesadOnline: Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the Palestinian land belongs to all Muslims so it is upon them to work for its liberation.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said the Palestinian land belongs to all Muslims so it is upon them to work for its liberation.

“The Islamic Republic’s support for Palestine is based on Islamic teachings and is not a tactical or diplomatic move,” he said in a meeting with the leader of the Hamas resistance movement, Ismail Haniyeh, on Wednesday in Tehran, Leader.ir reported.

He also called for increased unity and solidarity among resistance groups, stressing that their success is foiling enemy plots to cause division among them.

Ayatollah Khamenei said Gaza is the center of resistance, but the point which will eventually inflict a heavy defeat on the enemy would be the West Bank.

Haniyeh appreciated Iran’s continual support of the Palestinian cause and presented a report of the latest developments in occupied lands, especially the West Bank.

The Palestinian resistance leader had met President Ebrahim Raisi a day earlier.

During the meeting, he applauded solidarity and unity among all Palestinians as a great achievement of the resistance front.

“Palestinian resistance forces have mobilized all their potential in their recent battle with the Israeli regime and there are continued meetings and coordination between all resistance groups,” Haniyeh said.

He added that the resistance front is now becoming stronger not only in the besieged Gaza Strip, but also in the West Bank and other lands occupied since 1948, and even among supporters of Palestine outside Palestinian territories.

Haniyeh thanked Iran for its continued support for the liberation of Beit-ul-Moqaddas.

Raisi hailed the recent victories made by Palestinian resistance groups in the occupied territories, saying the front has the upper hand in the fight against the Israeli regime today.

"The resistance front is changing the balance of power not only in the occupied lands, but also across the entire region and even in the world to its favor and against the domination front,” he said.

He said the resistance front is now more powerful than ever while its enemies are their weakest state, adding that the victories of the Palestinian resistance challenge the Israel’s claim about its deterrence power.

Today, even those who once supported negotiations with the occupying regime have come to the conclusion that it is useless and that resistance is the only way to deal with the regime, according to Raisi.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran and the Palestinian resistance front always believed that the Zionists and their supporters never remain committed to any agreement, a fact that has been become known to the entire world," he said.

The president later stressed that any attempt to normalize relations with the Israeli regime is a "betrayal of the Palestinian cause."

“Those who are seeking to normalize ties between the Israelis and some regional countries should know that this will not guarantee the security of the Israeli regime,” he said.

Raisi had earlier met the leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Ziyad al-Nakhalah on Monday in Tehran, where he reassured that final victory is at hand and is for the people of Palestine.

He also said Israel’s normalization with certain Arab and Muslim countries is will not produce a result since the first and strongest opponents of this process are the very people of those states.

During the meeting, Nakhalah underlined Israel’s decline evidenced by its compulsion to reach an agreement with resistance forces in the latest round of conflicts.
