Parliament's General Director for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a meeting with a representative of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement in Iran, Nasser Abu Sharif, on Monday.
During the meeting, Amir-Abdollahian condemned the brutal attacks carried out by Israeli military forces on -Aqsa Mosque which led to the martyrdom and injury of dozens of Palestinian people, and highlighted the need for further unity among the Islamic Ummah in confronting the terror-nurturing and crisis-creating regime of Israel.
“These brutal and aggressive measures by the Zionist regime will not remain unanswered,” the Iranian official stressed.
He went on to add that Israel’s objective is to attain full control over Jerusalem and that the regime has imposed many restrictions on this region in order to achieve its goal.
Abu Sharif, for his part, said Palestine expects all Muslim and independent-thinking people around the world to voice their solidarity with Palestinians against the Israeli occupiers.
“Now that the Muslim’s public opinion has once again turned toward the Palestinian issue, we should use this opportunity to unite all Muslims under a common goal [against Israel],” he stressed.
