Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman has hailed the steely resistance of Palestinians in the face of the Israeli military’s two-day military onslaught on the Jenin refugee camp, saying the occupying regime suffered a humiliating defeat in the battle.

In a tweet on Sunday, Nasser Kan’ani wrote that the trail of destruction left behind in the Jenin camp marks a shameful moral failure for the supporters of the regime.

“The war machine of the criminal Israeli regime suffered a new historic defeat in the recent brutal onslaught on Jenin. Nonetheless, a much bigger defeat awaits the supporters of the regime,” he said.

Kan’ani further underlined that the scale of destruction in the Jenin camp marks a flagrant violation of international law and constitutes a war crime.

He also called on Palestinians to expose such level of aggression to the world so that the so-called advocates of human rights would become more disgraced.

UN chief Antonio Guterres told reporters on Thursday that “there was an excessive force used by Israeli forces” during the Jenin raid, which claimed the lives of at least 12 Palestinians and left approximately 100 others injured.

One Israeli soldier was killed during the raid, before Israeli troops finally pulled back on Tuesday evening following a 44-hour-long incursion.
