‘Iran will support any nation that fights Israel’

Tehran, May 21 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 5/21/2020 8:50:52 AM IST

Iran will support any nation or group that fights Israel, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said ahead of this week’s annual observance of Quds (Jerusalem) Day to express support for Palestinians.

“We will support and assist any nation or any group anywhere who opposes and fights the Zionist regime, and we do not hesitate to say this,” Khamenei said in a post on his official Twitter account. 

Israel has carried out hundreds of air strikes in Syria targeting suspected arms and troop movements by Iran and the Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas that Tehran sponsors.

Separately, Khamenei said that Iran’s enmity toward Israel was not the same as hostility toward Jewish people. “The elimination of the government of Israel does not mean the elimination of Jews. We don’t have an issue with Jewish people,” Khamenei said in his Twitter account.

“Elimination of Israel’ means the Muslim, Christian and Jewish people of #Palestine choose their own government themselves and push out foreigners and thugs like [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu,” the post added.
