TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi reiterated Tehran’s policy to support Palestine’s resistance against the Zionist regime of Israel and said plots to consign the Palestinian cause to oblivion will get nowhere.

“Nearly seventy years have passed since the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the establishment of the oppressive Zionist regime,” Qassemi said in a statement on Wednesday on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

“During the period, the oppressed and defenseless nation of Palestine has seen nothing but oppression, aggression, occupation, displacement, crime, murder, racial cleansing and apartheid,” he added.

The spokesman further pledged Tehran’s unwavering support for Palestinians, saying the Iranian people and government will continue their support, as in the past, until the victory of the Palestinian people and the liberation of all of the occupied lands.

Qassemi also emphasized that “certainly, the Zionist plots to make the Palestinian cause fade into oblivion will get nowhere.”

The International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People is observed by the United Nations on or around November 29 each year, according to the UN.

Back in January, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined Iran’s determination to continue support for the Palestinian cause.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran will remain resolved (in its support) until the day that the cause of Palestine is materialized,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with Head of Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine–General Command (PFLP-GC) Ahmed Jibril in Tehran.

The Leader also said that the issue of Palestine is among the top issues of the entire Muslim world.
