Iran Prepared To Defeat ‘Deal Of Century’, Qods Force Commander Tells Gaza Leaders
“Iran is prepared to stand alongside the Palestinian nation and particularly resistance forces to confront the threats caused by the Deal of the Century,” General Esmail Qaani has said in a phone conversation with Islamic Jihad leader Ziad Nakhale and HAMAS leader Ismail Haniyeh Saturday evening.
Qaani replaced Qods Force’s former commander Qassem Soleimani after he was killed in a U.S. drone attack in Baghdad in early January.
Semi-official news agency ISNA says that the two Palestinian leaders welcomed Iran’s stance against the Deal of the Century. However, Qaani did not elaborate on how Iran is going to confront Trump’s initiative.
Haniyeh and Nakhale met Qaani last month during their visit to Iran to take part in Soleimani’s funeral. However, the Saturday night conversation over the phone was the first reported official contact with Palestinian leaders by a high-ranking Iranian military officer after the declaration of the Deal of the Century.
President Trump who has been working during the past three years on a plan to end the Israel-Palestinian conflict, took part at a meeting at the White House also attended by Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu on January 28 to introduce the new deal.
Trump called the Deal of the Century “an excellent opportunity” and a “historical occasion” for the Palestinians and hoped that they would accept the deal and begin to establish their own independent country.
However, the Islamic Republic does not recognize the state of Israel, insists that it is an illegitimate entity and says the deal is doomed to fail. Top officials harshly rejected Trump’s deal from the beginning and tried to turn the issue into an all-Islamic rallying point against the United States.
