Statement following the onset of the Hamas-Israel war in the Gaza strip:

 “[T]he current victories achieved in Palestine have been unable to be achieved by all the Arab armies…all the Arab leaders abandoned the Palestinian cause, and only the Islamic Revolution [referring to Iran] and the resistance factions remain with it…if America intervenes in Palestine, we will be forced to intervene and will not hesitate to target [US personnel].”Joe Truzman, “Other Iraqi groups, figures join the fray warning the United States against support for Israel,” Long War Journal, October 11, 2023, https://www.longwarjournal.org/archives/2023/10/other-iraqi-groups-figures-join-the-fray-warning-the-united-states-against-support-for-israel.php.

“The Israeli enemy, in the face of the escalation of resistance in the West Bank, fled to accuse Iran and to pretend that what is happening there is an Iranian plan and that the Palestinians there are tools, and this is foolishness. The battle in the West Bank is with the Palestinian people. Yes, the Islamic Republic supports the oppressed Palestinian people, but the resistance project is a Palestinian project.”Tzvi Joffre, “Nasrallah warns Israel against targeting Hamas leaders in Lebanon,” Jerusalem Post, August 29, 2023, https://www.jpost.com/breaking-news/article-756625.

“Iran is our partner, our friend and our supporter. They were never reluctant in providing any help to the Palestinian people. We don’t need instigations, we’re not anyone’s proxy. Israel’s barbaric crimes make it a source of instability not only in Palestine, but across the region. They attack Syria, Iraq and — as we saw recently — Iranian nuclear facilities. They assassinate nuclear scientists. So yes, we’re confronting a common enemy, but that doesn’t mean we should be blamed. We are victims and it’s Israel that’s been committing all these atrocities.”Ali Hashem, “Hamas representative in Iran: latest round of fighting is strategic shift for group,” Al-Monitor, May 17, 2021, https://www.al-monitor.com/originals/2021/05/hamas-representative-iran-latest-round-fighting-strategic-shift-group.
