TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif offered his congratulations to the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) movement over the recent success in imposing its conditions on the Israeli regime for a ceasefire.
In a telephone conversation with Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PJI) Ziyad Al-Nakhalah on Sunday night, Zarif condemned the latest Israeli aggression on Gaza.
The top diplomat further congratulated the movement on the success in imposing its conditions on the Tel Aviv regime for a ceasefire.
Last week, the Israeli regime forces martyred Baha Abu Atta, a top commander of the PIJ, along with his wife in his house in Gaza city.
The Islamic Jihad retaliated by firing hundreds of rockets towards the occupied lands and brought life in the Zionist settlements and even Israeli major cities, including its commercial hub Tel Aviv, to a standstill for several days.
The PIJ fighters also inflicted casualties on the Israeli army, injuring several soldiers and destroying an advanced tank.
According to local reports, Tel Aviv agreed to the Islamic Jihad’s key demands in exchange for the resistance group to stop firing rockets into the occupied territories and ensure Gaza rallies are peaceful.
On Wednesday night, Nakhalah said the resistance group had laid out a list of demands for the ceasefire with Israel to Egyptian moderators.
