“Today Palestine is the symbol of life, determination, faithfulness, diligence, and dignity,” Khamenei explained, adding that the Palestinians had proves that they were “spiritually more powerful than Zionists,” which is why the IDF has been unable “defeat them.”

“Palestinians’ faith is the main factor in their resistance,” he said.

Khamenei went on to call Israel “a symbol of atrocity, viciousness, and ugliness,” and said the West’s “support for the Zionist regime is ineffective.”
