Religious teachers at the north-central Iranian city of Qom’s internationally-renowned Seminary hail how the Gaza Strip’s resistance movements turned the fortunes of war against the Israeli regime during Tel Aviv’s recent escalation against the coastal territory.

Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom that represents the educators made the remarks in a Saturday statement, saying the movements managed to “turn the tables on the Zionist regime [of Israel]” during the warfare.

The Israeli regime launched a 12-day war against the already Tel Aviv-blockaded Gaza Strip earlier this month. Gaza’s resistance groups started responding to the aggression on the same day that it started targeting the enclave.

Throughout the offensive, the groups fired more than 4,000 rockets towards the occupied territories. The projectiles swept the entire expanse of the territories, many flying as far as Tel Aviv, the holy occupied city of al-Quds, and even the northern-lying cities of Haifa and Nazareth.

The Israeli regime finally gave in to a ceasefire on Friday, incapable of stopping the resistance’s rocket avalanche.

What further turned the tide against the regime was the unity that transpired within the entire borders that used to demarcate Palestine before the Israeli invasion of 1948, the statement added.

The unity bound the resistance movements, their fellow Palestinians in the Tel Aviv-occupied West Bank, and others based elsewhere in the occupied territories during the Israeli aggression, they said. “Today, the brutal and infanticidal Zionist regime tastes the bitterness of defeat in the face of this unity,” the statement read.

The era of the regime’s “brazen attacks” is over, they said, adding that the ardent Palestinian youths now had the upper hand in their cause of defending the holy occupied city of al-Quds against the regime.

The senior seminarists also valued the resistance groups’ calculation, planning, and “intelligence superiority” over the regime during the struggle.

The Palestinian groups also bore witness to the futility of the dreams that are entertained by those, who have been seeking to realize the “from-Nile-to-Euphrates” project. The ambition refers to the Israeli regime and its international supporters’ dream of stretching the areas under the regime’s occupation from the former river to the latter.
