Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Major General Mohammad-Ali Jafari says Iran has provided the Palestinian resistance movement, Hamas, with only the technology to produce Fajr 5 (Dawn) missiles.
“Gaza is currently under siege so we cannot help them,” Jafari said on Wednesday, adding that Iran has only transferred the know-how to produce Fajr 5 missiles to Gaza and they are being produced quickly.
“We offer all Muslims technological aid to [help them] stand up against arrogant powers and we offer [to give] them our experiences to defend their people,” the IRGC commander said.
Major General Jafari made the remarks in response to Israeli claims that Iran has provided Hamas with Fajr 5 missiles.
At least 150 Palestinians have lost their lives and 1,200 others have been injured as the Tel Aviv regime continues its deadly strikes against the besieged Gaza Strip for the eighth consecutive day.
In the latest offensive, Israeli jets also hit the office of Agence France-Presse (AFP) in Gaza city killing one person. Tel Aviv has attacked the costal enclave 1,500 times since November 14.
The Iranian commander added that Iran supports a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel if such a truce is to the interest of Palestinians.
