Statement to the Hamas of IRGC commander
The infrastructures and defense capability should develop in the West Bank, too, and the volume, range and precision of the resistance movement’s rocket should increase, General Jafari said in a congratulatory message to the people of Gaza and resistance movement groups on their victory over the Zionist regime in the 51-day Gaza war.
Earlier this week, a senior commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps had said that Iran would expedite arming Palestinian resistance groups in the occupied West Bank in retaliation for the recent Israeli aggression into its airspace.
The issue of arming West Bank attracted a great deal of attention after Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined the necessity for armed confrontation with the Zionist regime of Israel.
Back on July 23, Ayatollah Khamenei described the armed resistance as the only way to confront the “destructive regime” of Israel, noting, “Based on these realities, we believe that the West Bank should also be armed like Gaza and those who are interested in Palestine’s destiny should act in this regard in order to relieve Palestinians’ distress.”
Elsewhere in his congratulatory message, General Jafari reiterated that the revolutionary people of Iran and the IRGC will continue to stand by the Palestinian people and the resistance.
He described the resistance movement’s triumph in the Gaza war as a” great, everlasting glory” in the history of Islam and truth-seeking struggles of Muslims.
“Undoubtedly, this 51-day resistance of yours is a starting point for the collapse of the ruthless and child-killing Zionist regime,” the IRGC commander underscored.
This week, Gazans celebrated victory after seven weeks of resistance against the Israeli offensive against the Palestinians of the coastal enclave.
On Tuesday, Palestinian groups and Egyptian mediators confirmed that the Cairo-based talks ended in truce.
Palestinians poured into the streets of the war-torn sliver to celebrate as the Egyptian-brokered truce took effect.
People and traffic filled the streets with drivers honking horns and crowds chanting slogans.
The truce stipulates the removal of Israeli blockade as well as the provision of a guarantee that Palestinian demands will be met.
Crossings between Israel and Gaza will open and the two sides will continue holding indirect talks, according to the deal.
The Palestinian territory’s fishing zone will also be widened in the Mediterranean.
The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas said the deal marks a victory for Palestinians and called for mass rallies in the occupied West Bank.
A total of 2,142 people, most of them civilians including more than 490 children, have been killed in Gaza since war broke out on July 8, after Israel launched an offensive on the coastal enclave of 1.8 million population.
A total of 69 people have been killed on the Israeli side, nearly all of them soldiers.
