Iran's support for Palestinian cause derived from Islamic principles

Tehran, Jan 1, IRNA - Head of Iran-Palestinian Parliamentary Friendship Group Amir Khojasteh says Iran's support for Palestinians' ideals are derived from Islamic principles.

Khojasteh further told Secretary-General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement (PIJ) Ziad Al-Nakhaleh in Tehran on Tuesday that the Zionist regime, the United States and some of the leaders of the countries in the region are in efforts to turn a blind eye to the Palestinian issue and compromise with the occupying regime.

He said Palestine and Quds are still the first issues of the Islamic world and Muslim nations, and until the complete liberation of Quds and the occupied territories, Muslim nations will stand against the occupying regime.

Secretary-General of the Palestine Islamic Jihad Movement in turn appreciated efforts and support of the Islamic Republic of the Palestinian people and the Islamic Resistance of Palestine and said, 'Iran is the true patron of the Palestinian people and the forerunner of the struggle against the Zionist regime.'

Al-Nakhaleh added, 'Over the past years, despite many problems, the Palestinian Islamic Resistance has achieved significant success in the fight against the occupation regime and we will witness more success in the future.'
