Brigadier General Hossein Salami who was speaking in a TV program provided comments on Iran’s outlook toward the developments in Palestine.
"Why they chose this time to attack was because they felt that many Arab states’ policies are more favorable toward Israel than Palestine,” stated the IRGC second in command.
He stated "The important event about the resistance is that their defense turned endogenous. During the previous wars a large part of their capabilities used to be borrowed whereas today the Palestinian resistance is productive. This is evident in missiles and drones; where we can see a daily number of 100 missiles and rockets shot at the Israeli lands.”
Salami added "The fact that resistance missiles make it to Haifa means that they got a range of 100 miles; literally meaning that nearly the entire area occupied by Israel is covered by resistance missiles.”
"With all its intelligence facilities, the Zionist regime has failed to recognize the key resistance staff or missile arsenals, or to discover a large number of the tunnels. These comprise intelligence failure imposed on Israel by the resistance,” the IRGC official maintained.
He further said "We will support the Muslims and the oppressed around the world without any limit. How is it that the domineering powers join hands to burn innocent people without any limit? Then how can one expect Iran as the pivotal power of the Islamic world to remain silent?”
