A senior Iranian military commander says Palestinians are determined to avenge the deaths of their countrymen killed in recent Israeli strikes.
“We will chase you house by house and will avenge every drop of blood [shed from] our martyrs in Palestine, and this is the starting point of the awakening of Muslim nations for defeating you,” Brigadier General Hossein Salami, the second-in-command of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said on Friday.
The general said no spot in the occupied Palestinian territories is safe for the Zionists, adding, “Today, the [power of] Palestinian resistance’s missiles are far beyond the Zionists’ estimate.”
Salami said the Palestinian nation will emerge winner in the ongoing war on the Gaza Strip and the “Muslim world will finally become a grave for the policies of the United States, the Zionist regime and their regional reactionary allies.”
“The power balance will change in favor of the Muslim world and we warn the Zionists that you are a rootless community having no territory, no race, no history and no composing element of a nation,” said the Iranian commander.
On Friday, massive rallies were held across Iran on International Quds Day in another show of support for the oppressed Palestinian nation in the face of Israeli occupation and atrocities.
Demonstrators carried placards and chanted anti-Israel slogans, condemning the Zionist regime’s fresh bloody offensive against the besieged Gaza Strip amid the silence of the international community.
This year’s anti-Israel protests are being held as Israeli warplanes and tanks have been pounding numerous sites inside Gaza, killing innocent residents of the impoverished Palestinian enclave over the past 18 days.
Nearly 830 Palestinians have so far been killed and over 5,200 wounded since the Israeli military first launched its onslaught on the Palestinian enclave on July 8
