Voice support for Hamas from thousands of Palestinian people participated in the demonstration, which was held on the streets of Khan Yunis, a city in the south of the blockaded territory. Hamas Political Bureau Chief Khaled Meshaal says his movement is united with both Iran and the Lebanese resistance movement.
“We are united by our fight against the Israeli occupation” despite “some differences towards certain issues, including Syria,” Meshaal was quoted by AFP as saying.
He emphasized that Hamas is still in contact with Iran and Hezbollah.
In July, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian reaffirmed the Islamic Republic’s support for the Palestinian resistance movement, saying Tehran has maintained “the strongest ties with Hamas under the most difficult conditions.”
“We announce out loud that Iraq, Iran, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine are five influential countries in the resistance front even despite international and Zionist plots against this axis and front,” Amir-Abdollahian added.
Ezzeddin al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of Hamas, has been fighting off Israeli forces in Gaza and firing rockets deep into the occupied lands since July 8.
