Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei expressed solidarity with the Palestinians by encouraging them to keep fighting Israel while Iran pledges to “defend [their] movement in any way” they can.
“The intifada of Palestinian people in the West Bank has started and people are fighting [against Israel],” Khamenei said, according to Iran’s semi-official Press TV.
“About 60 years have passed since the occupation of Palestine and these people have changed for a number of generations, but the cause of Palestine still exists,” he added.
Meanwhile, Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz (Likud) spoke about the fight against Palestinian terror at a conference in Sderot on Wednesday.
“We cannot fight the wars of yesterday,” Katz said. “This is not an intifada—this is jihad, and the necessary steps must be taken accordingly. Blacklisting the northern branch of the Islamic Movement [in Israel] is the first step in the right direction.”
The Islamic Movement was recently outlawed by the Israeli government for its incitement over the Temple Mount holy site.
