Iran's President Ebrahim Raeisi insists that acts of resistance by brave Palestinians have brought them ever closer to triumph over the occupying Israeli regime.

"With Jihad and resistance, we will approach victory day by day," the Iranian president further emphasize on Sunday in a meeting with visiting Secretary-General of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement, Ziad al-Nakhaleh, and his accompanying delegation.

During the meeting, President Raeisi also hailed the persisting struggle of the Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian resistance movements fighting the growing atrocities of Israeli forces across occupied Palestine.

The president reiterated the Islamic Republic's support for the oppressed Palestinian nation and their "just cause," which he said "remains the cause of all Muslims."

He went on to call for more unity among the entire forces of different resistance factions.

Earlier this week, Nakhaleh met with Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, who lauded the latest victory of Islamic Jihad forces against the Israeli regime while reiterating that the growing power of Palestinian resistance groups is the key to forcing the occupying regime to its knees.

On Sunday, Nakhaleh also met Iran's Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, who, for his part, praised the great achievements made by the Islamic Jihad in confronting the Israeli occupation forces during its five-day aggression against the besieged Gaza Strip.

The Israeli aggression claimed the lives of more than 30 Palestinian civilians, including women and children, and ended on May 13 following an Egyptian-brokered ceasefire deal.

Amir-Abdollahian also underlined the significance to maintain unity among all Palestinian factions while warning against persisting Israeli plots to sow discord among them.

He also stressed that the "racist" Israeli regime is the "main source of insecurity and instability in the region," calling on Muslim nations to take "a coordinated and effective action to stop crimes against humanity committed by Israel against the oppressed people of Palestine and to defend the Islamic sanctuaries in al-Quds."

For his part, Nakhaleh briefed Iran's top diplomat on the latest developments across occupied Palestine, particularly the May battle dubbed "Revenge of the Free People."

He further expressed his appreciation for Iran's unwavering support for the Palestinian people and resistance forces.
