TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A spokesman for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement slammed the Arab League’s stance on Palestine and said the Saudi-led organization is seeking to undermine the anti-Israeli resistance front.
Speaking to the Press Shia News Agency, Davoud Shihab underlined that addressing the Palestinian issue is not on the agenda of the Arab League.
Instead, he added, leveling “heavy accusations” against resistance front countries is high on the agenda of the Arab League.
The spokesman went on to say that in a recent meeting of the Arab League in Riyadh, no comments were made in condemnation of Israel.
However, he deplored, sanctions have been imposed on Iran, Hezbollah and the Palestinian resistance due to their support for the Palestinian nation.
On Wednesday, 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.
Back in January, 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.
