The top Iranian parliamentarian also emphasized an all-out and unconditional support of the Palestinian nation by people and the government of the Islamic Republic, noting that the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini turned Palestine into the most significant issue in the Muslim world and opened a new chapter in the resistance against the Israeli regime.Jibril, for his part, described Iran as the only state that has stood beside the Palestinian nation during the most difficult times. He also stressed that the objective of intervention in regional countries such as Syria by global powers is to “disintegrate important regional states and sow discord and ethnic conflicts” in the neighborhood. Jibril went on to reiterate that standing beside the Syrian government and nation during the current circumstances “in effect amounts to countering this great Zionist plot in our region.” Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards across the country. Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes by suspected foreign-backed armed gangs. MFB/IS
