Iran’s FM to Syria’s Assad: Al-Aqsa Storm showed Palestine still alive

Tehran, IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian says Operation Al-Aqsa Storm showed that Palestine is still alive.

During a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus on Friday evening, Amirabdollahian said the resistance has the ability to continue fighting off the Zionist regime for a long period of time.

“Iran and Syria’s support for the resistance of the Palestinian nation is not hidden from anyone, but the recent operation of the Palestinians was a completely Palestinian decision, design, and action,” he said, dismissing allegations of Iran’s involvement.

He said the West seeks to falsify facts on the ground in the Gaza Strip to justify and legitimize the atrocities of the Zionist regime.

The Iranian foreign minister also said the United States cannot call on Palestinians to exercise restraint while at the same time supplying the Zionist regime with weapons to be used against Palestinian citizens.

For his part, Assad voiced concerns about the extent of crimes committed by the occupying regime against the people of Gaza, saying the Zionists and their supporters, including the US and Western countries, seek to use the operation as a pretext to destroy the Palestinian resistance.

He argued that the reason the West stands with the Zionist regime is the intense political, economic, and social crises of Israel and their concern about the looming collapse of the regime.

The Syrian president also expressed support for Iran’s proposal for an emergency OIC foreign ministerial meeting, calling for all-out efforts to prevent the continuation of Israeli crimes against the people of the Gaza Strip.

The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas on October 7 launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, a surprise attack, in the occupied territories, saying the operation was a response to the regime’s violations at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East al-Quds.

The Zionist regime subsequently carried out deadly strikes on the densely populated Gaza Strip. The ongoing air raids have so far killed 1,900 people, including 614 children and 370 women.
