Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan pledged support for Palestinians groups that fight against the “Zionist regime,” in a meeting with the head of Islamic Jihad.
“The secret of victory over the Zionist regime and the liberation of the Holy al-Quds [Jerusalem] lie in the unity of all Muslims,” Dehqan told Ramadan Shalah in their meeting in Iran on Tuesday, Fars News Agency reported.
“The goal of the big powers is to wage war, create turmoil and promote terrorism in the region in a bid to guarantee the security of the Zionist regime and forget the Palestinian cause,” the defense minister said.
Shalah and his delegation met Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday, and have met other Iranian leaders during their current visit.
