Gaza war to accelerate Israel collapse: IRGC commander

Tehran, July 28, IRNA – Gaza war will accelerate Zionist regime's collapse, Deputy Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Brigadier General Hossein Salami said on Monday.

Speaking in a ceremony to commemorate martyrs of Iraq's imposed war against Iran, he noted that Gaza war is an introduction to the dissolution of the Zionist regime.

Salami underscored that the Resistance Movement is capable of defending the Palestinian people against the Zionist regime's atrocities.

Oppressed nations of the region have been inspired by Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution to fight for their rights against arrogant power's illegal demands and oppressive behavior, the senior commander asserted.

Gaza has been blockaded by the Israeli regime since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

More than 1,000 Palestinians have been killed and over 5,000 others injured in recent Israeli offensive on Gaza since July 8.
