He reiterated that the Iranian nation and officials deem supporting and defending the Palestinian nation as their religious duty.

'The conditions of the region are very difficult at the moment and under such conditions we witness occurrence of crises in the region, specially terrorism, and such conditions have created a good opportunity for the Zionist regime's plots,' Larijani added.
