The delegation met with Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

In recent months, Hamas has been getting closer to resistanceoriented countries as it changes its policy and attitude toward regional developments.

The visit of the Hamas delegation to Russia and Iran from the point of view of regional political experts is aimed at approaching to Syria and other resistanceoriented countries.

Hamas closed and exited its offices in Syria during the 9year Syrian crisis and even supported some opposition to the Syrian government at some point.

In a meeting with Saleh alArouri on Monday July 22, the deputy leader of the Islamic Resistance Movement of Palestine (Hamas),Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said that the Palestinian cause will definitely end up to restore the rights of the Palestinian people and the Muslim World.

Kamal Kharrazi, chairman of Iran's Strategic Council on Foreign Relations on Sunday July 21 reaffirmed that the country would continue supporting Palestine as the liberation of the territories and the holy Quds is among Iran's greatest causes.

In his meeting with Saleh alArouri, deputy leader of Palestinian resistance movement Hamas, he said that Tehran has been backing Palestine since the victory of the Islamic Revolution.

Advisor to the Supreme Leader in International Affairs Ali Akbar Velayati stressed that The Deal of the Century though not fully formed yet is already doomed to failure.

Iranian Parliament (Majlis) Speaker Ali Larijani described backing Palestine as Islamic obligation, saying that resistance is the only way which will make enemies of Palestine feel regret.
