TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – A senior Palestinian official invited Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani to visit the Gaza Strip.
A Palestinian parliamentary delegation, led by Mahmoud al-Zahar, held a meeting with Iran’s parliament speaker in Tehran on Saturday.
In the meeting, Zahar, the co-founder of Hamas and a member of the Hamas leadership in Gaza, praised Iran for supporting Palestine.
He also officially invited Larijani to pay a visit to the Gaza Strip.
Zahar then lauded Iran’s opposition to the resolutions that the US proposes against Palestine in the United Nations.
For his part, Larijani denounced the Zionist regime of Israel’s atrocities against Palestinians, stressing the need for efforts to publicize such crimes and support the cause of Palestine.
He also expressed the hope that the regional and international nations would boost support for Palestine’s resistance.
In comments in November, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said while some rulers of Muslim countries have sided with the US in the criminal moves against Palestine and Yemen, the Palestinian and Yemeni nations will definitely emerge victorious and the US and its followers will suffer defeats.
Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that Palestine will win victory on the basis of divine promises, saying the Zionist regime of Israel has increasingly lost its power, which has been obvious in the length of the wars that Israelis have launched against Hezbollah and Palestine in recent years.
