Chief of staff calls for the truce conditions of Palestinian Resistance to be met

Tehran, July 24, IRNA – Chief of staff of the armed forces, Major General Hassan Firouzabadi said Thursday that the truce conditions of the Palestinian Resistance must be heeded. Hamas government required Israel to lift blockade on Gaza.

Firouzabadi said that the Israeli leaders perpetrated crimes against humanity in Gaza on the eve of the International Qods Day by disproportionate bombardment of civilian targets deliberately to take heavy tolls on the Palestinians.

He expressed indignation at striking the mosques at the fasting month of Ramadan, houses, hospitals using bombs forbidden by international conventions.

However, he said the Zionists are shocked by the power of the Palestinian Resistance movement.

Now, the Zionist regime has no other way but to accept the conditions set by the Palestinian Resistance, Firouzabadi said.

The Palestinians have said the blockade on Gaza should be lifted. The arrests of Hamas supporters in the nearby West Bank should be stopped and those arrested by Israel should be released. They have also required Israel to honor its commitment to the 2012 agreement and said Tel Aviv has to stop efforts to undermine the Palestinian national reconciliation.
