The Israeli regime will be gone soon and the Palestinian nation will be victorious in the final battle to liberate Palestine, says a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

“This is a definite principle,” Ali Akbar Velayati added in a Monday meeting with Khaled al-Qaddoumi, the Hamas representative in Iran amid the Israeli war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

He hailed the recent achievements made by the Palestinian resistance, saying that Hamas is moving ahead on the right path toward winning a final victory.

Velayati, who is also the secretary general of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening, said the ongoing Hamas’ large-scale operation against the occupation, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, was a major step that shocked the enemies.

He emphasized that Iran stands by the oppressed Palestinian people and would continue its spiritual support.

The Leader’s aide also encouraged Hamas fighters to move ahead with all their might, saying the Muslim world is strongly supporting them in the war against the Israeli regime.

Qaddoumi, for his part, praised Iran’s stance in support of the Palestinian cause, saying that as emphasized by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Palestinians must reinforce their unity to obtain their goal and defeat the criminal Israeli regime.

He said the recent unprecedented achievements made by the Palestinian people proved that the Israeli regime is in decline and that Palestinians will liberate al-Quds.

On October 7, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm deep into the territories occupied by the Israeli regime. The operation involved large-scale air, land, and sea strikes.

At least 2,750 Palestinians have been killed and 9,700 others wounded as the Israeli regime presses ahead with its bombing campaign against residential neighborhoods in the besieged Gaza Strip.
