Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday the destruction of Israel was assured, while pledging to “defend Palestinians due to their heartfelt beliefs.”
”Israel is going downhill toward decline and fall and God willing its obliteration is certain,” Khamenei said during a meeting with Islamic Jihad leader Ramadan Abdullah Shallah, according to the Teheran Times.

“Today Palestine is the symbol of life, determination, faithfulness,diligence, and dignity,” Khamenei explained, adding that thePalestinians had proved that they were “spiritually more powerful thanZionists,” which is why the IDF has been unable “defeat them.”
“Palestinians’ faith is the main factor in their resistance,” he said.
Khameneiwent on to call Israel “a symbol of atrocity, viciousness, andugliness,” and said the West’s “support for the Zionist regime isineffective.”
