TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Meeting with Deputy Head of Hamas Political Bureau, Kamal Kharrazi said that the criterion of the Islamic Republic’s supports of the oppressed is resistance against the Zionist regime, not their being Sunni or Shiite.

Also pointing out to “Shiite Crescent” slogan chanted by Zionists, Kharrazi asserted that the slogan is planed in oreder for spreading Takifiri terrorism in the region and overthrowing the regional governments as well as disseminating Resistance Front countries, yet it failed with the sacrifice of Resistance Front warriors.
Deputy Head of Hamas Political Bureau also for his part put emphasis on the unity of the Palestinian groups in fighting against the Israeli regime.
Saleh al-Arouri stressed “Hamas will by no means put aside the weapon of resistance, recognize the Zionist regime and cut off its relations with the Islamic Republic, and our visit to Tehran is also an indication of this resolve”.
