Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says the Islamic Republic had provided the Palestinian resistance groups with “the technology for producing weapons.”
“We have no doubt to help the people of Gaza. At present, Gazan fighters have good capabilities to meet their weapons demand, although we had provided them with the technology when they were in need of weapons technology,” Larijani said in an exclusive interview with Al-Alam news channel on Thursday.
He also criticized certain Arab and Islamic states for not assisting Palestinians in their resistance against the regime of Israel.
The speaker also called the ongoing deadly Israeli attacks on the Besieged Gaza and targeting hospitals and schools “a war crime”
Larijani also noted that the Israeli regime uses internationally banned weapons against the Gazans.
The speaker’s comments came as the death toll from more than two weeks of Israel’s relentless attacks on Gaza passed 805.
NGOs say Palestinian civilians, including a large number of women and children, comprise around 80 percent of total casualties.
Since July 8, Israeli warplanes have been pounding numerous sites in the Gaza Strip, demolishing houses and burying families in the rubble. Israeli tanks also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian land on July 17.
In response, Palestinian resistance fighters have continued to fire a barrage of rockets into the occupied Palestinian territories.
Israel’s military fatalities stand at 32 with one trooper missing. More than 130 soldiers have been hospitalized, according to Israeli media.
Many demonstrations have so far been held across the world in support of the Palestinians living in the blockaded strip.
