Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani says hard days lie ahead of Israel following the regime’s military aggression against the blockaded Gaza Strip, Press TV reports.
Addressing a massive Tasua mourning procession in the Turkish city of Istanbul on Saturday, Larijani pointed to Israel’s “new defeat” in its recent aggression against Gaza, saying, “You should rest assured that the Zionist regime [of Israel] has harder days ahead.”
He went on to say that during the recent war on Gaza Israel used different types of deadly weapons against the oppressed people of Gaza, but the West continued its arms supply to the regime instead of condemning such brutality.
The West is “Israel’s accomplice” in those crimes, Larijani pointed out.
The Iranian Majlis speaker praised the success of the resistance movement against Israel and reaffirmed Iran’s determination to lend all-out support to the Palestinian nation against Israel.
“We pride ourselves on supporting [Lebanon’s] Hezbollah to win the 33-day war [in 2006]. We pride ourselves on supporting the oppressed Palestinian nation in the 22-day war [in 2008] and the last-week war,” Larijani said.
“We tell the oppressed Palestinian nation that we provide every kind of assistance to them so they can defeat the savage Zionist regime [of Israel,]” he added.
Larijani arrived in Turkey on Friday on the last leg of his tour to Syria, Lebanon and Turkey.
