Zarif Praises Palestinian Resistance for Imposing Ceasefire Terms on ‘Israel’
By Staff, Agencies
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif praised the Palestinian nation and its resistance forces for forcing the Zionist entity to submit to its ceasefire terms after latter launched a two-day assault on the Gaza Strip last week.
Zarif made the comments while speaking with Leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad Ziyad Al-Nakhaleh on Sunday.
He also decried the Tel Aviv apartheid regime’s aggression against Palestinians, specifically in Gaza.
Last Tuesday, the ‘Israeli’ entity launched an assault on Gaza after assassinating senior Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander Baha Abu al-Atta.
At least 34 Palestinians, including eight children and three women, were martyred while another 110 were also injured as a result of the ensuing ‘Israeli’ attacks.
Palestinian resistance forces responded by firing more than 450 rockets into the ‘Israeli’-occupied territories, effectively paralyzing Tel Aviv and many other vast parts of the occupation entities.
The fighting came to a halt on Thursday after Islamic Jihad announced that ‘Israel’ had submitted to its ceasefire conditions.
Tel Aviv has since violated the truce by carrying a number of airstrikes on the embattled enclave.
