JaliliAs he noted that “the Palestinians' victory over the Zionist regime means the end of that regime's aggressions,” he demanded “the immediate removal of Gaza siege which has isolated it from the world.”

“Muslim countries should be vigilant towards the divisive plots of the Zionist regime and protect their unity,” Mehmanparast added.

After the Zionist entity which was defeated in the 33 days war (July 2006 war against Lebanon) and 22 days war (2008/2009 war against Gaza), suffered a defeat after eight days, and this refers to its increasing weakness, and in cotrst to the increasing power of the resistance,”” he added.
