Praising Palestinian resistance 

The Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution has praised the Palestinians for their resistance against Israel’s latest episode of brutality. Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei hailed the Islamic Jihad movement for its "courageous resistance." He said the Palestinian resolve neutralized the occupying regime’s deceptive plot and enhanced the status of resistance. Ayatollah Khamenei said the movement proved every faction of resistance can bring the enemy to its knees single-handedly. The Leader also commended unity among resistance groups based in the Gaza Strip and those in the occupied West Bank. He underscored the need to maintain that unity. Ayatollah Khamenei said Israel is on the decline, while resistance is growing stronger. He reiterated Iran’s support for the people of Palestine. The Leader made the remarks in response to a letter by the Islamic Jihad's secretary general. Ziad al-Nakhala hailed Iran’s continued support for the Palestinians in the fight against the Israeli regime. 

lundering Syria's oil

The United States continues looting Syria’s national resources as media reports reveal American forces have recently smuggled tons of stolen Syrian oil into Iraq. Syrian media say a convoy of over 140 tankers loaded with oil from Syrian oil fields crossed into Iraq through the illegal Al-Mahmoudiya border point in Syria’s northeastern province of Hasakah. The crossing was set up by US forces more than two years ago in the oil-rich province. Syria says American forces use the crossing to smuggle Syria’s national resources from the occupied regions into Iraq's north. US-backed militant groups are in control of northern Iraq. Last week, US forces and their allies reportedly sneaked a convoy of 60 vehicles, mostly tankers loaded with Syrian oil, into Iraq via another illegal crossing. Earlier this week, a veteran Syrian politician blasted the US for stealing the country’s natural resources.

Fueling war in Ukraine

Western countries continue giving arms to Ukraine despite repeated warnings from Russia against the supply. Britain says it will send more multiple-launch rocket systems capable of hitting targets up to 80 kilometers away. London says it will keep up its military support. Denmark has also said it is ready for more financial assistance to Kiev. Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen says half of the money goes to weapon production facilities and the remaining half will be spent on Danish equipment and military training.
