A letter from Tehran

October 7, 2023 has already gone down in history as a watershed in regional geopolitics. Through its military operation, Hamas managed overnight to reveal the underbelly of a regime which had long boasted about its invincibility, its military prowess and its intelligence superiority.

The myth, however, was shattered into pieces by a resistance group based in the Gaza Strip, a swathe in the Occupied Territories which has been under years of crippling siege.

To restore at least part of its lost face, Tel Aviv has desperately tried to drag the Islamic Republic of Iran into the war, blaming Tehran as the major force behind the escalation. But Iran's stance, since the very beginning, has been crystal clear. Iran supports the Palestinian cause as a centerpiece of its foreign policy, but at the same time, the country has made it clear again and again that it is not involved in the escalation at all.

On November 16, the commander of the IRGC Quds Force, Brigadier General Esmail Ghaani, sent a public letter to Hamas. The letter took the headlines right away. But what was the letter all about? What’s its significance? Why was it published at this time? And how should it be read without missing a point? These and more, on this edition of Iran Today.
