A senior member Palestinian Islamic Jihad praised Wednesday the mob of Iranian students that stormed two British embassy compounds on Tuesday, calling their actions "natural," semi-official Iranian FARS News Agency reported.

Ahmad al-Modallell told FARS that "It is natural for the Iranian nation, with the students at the top of them, to rise to clean this arrogant dirt from their country's soil," according to the report.

Modallel also said the British government is at fault for the ongoing suffering of the Palestinian people, FARS reported.

Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a small but militant Palestinian group, is considered a terrorist organization by the UK.
