Leader: Intensifying fight against occupiers, allies, key to Palestine issue

Tehran, The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution said on Wednesday that the solution to the issue of Palestine lies in strengthening the combatant and resistant wing in the Islamic world and intensifying fight against the occupying regime and its allies.

In response to a recent letter by Hamas' Political Bureau Chief Ismail Haniyeh, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei added that moving toward negotiations with the deceptive, occupying and liar regime is a big unforgivable sin.

Underlining Iran's permanent stance in full support of Palestine and its combatants, the leader said that any move in line with talks with the Zionist regime will postpone the victory of the Palestinian nation and will bring nothing to the oppressed nation but loss.

Nowadays, when intensification of the Zionist regime's tyranny and atrocities in Gaza has angered the sympathizers of Palestine, I deem it necessary to underscore once again Iran's all-time stance on this major issue which is on the top of the problems facing the Islamic Umma, the Supreme Leader said.

No doubt that the only way to save Palestine and the sole prescription to heal the wounds of Palestinian people is fighting and resistance, Ayatollah Khamenei said.

'In your kind letter, you had mentioned certain big challenges facing the Islamic Ummah and pointed to the treachery and hypocrisy of certain Arab countries in the region as well as their evil plots, and described Palestinian combatants as fighters on the forefronts of war against pressure, tyranny and crimes of the enemies,' Ayatollah Khamenei said, noting that 'whatever you have written in this regard is really true and approvable.'

We feel ourselves duty-bound to lend support to you in all possible ways, the Leader said, noting, This is our religious and humanitarian duty beyond all political developments.

Today, restoring dignity and power of the Islamic Ummah is contingent upon resistance against the arrogance and its evil plots and the issue of Palestine is at the top of all Islamic international affairs in the face of the arrogant powers, Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Recently, Hamas' Political Bureau Chief Ismail Haniyeh in a letter to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei had highlighted the arrogant powers' plots to undermine the Palestinian nation and appreciated the Iranian nation for its support as well as guidelines of the Supreme Leader.
