Your words and messages before the attack to Gaza and during the hard days of war, inspired dignity, freedom seeking and resistance among the people of Gaza and the resistance forces and helped them in their struggle against the enemy.
Under your responsible guidelines, the Islamic Republic, in all possible fields, especially in Doha Summit, played an active role in a way that helped our helpless people and created a new hope among the Palestinians.
The Islamic Republic of Iran, with its support in different fields, helped the resistance of the Palestinians. The victory of the people of Gaza in the war was the second victory of the Islamic resistance after the war in the south of Lebanon. May the Almighty God bless your Excellency and the Iranian nation for your assistance and support.
Under your leadership, the Iranian nation has done a lot to support the people of Palestine. These efforts are an honor for us and we appreciate them.
People of Palestine, especially people of Gaza are still in need of your political and non-political support for the reconstruction works and overcoming the difficulties created by the enemy.
The Palestinian nation needs a free and honorable life without invasion and blockade so that it can materialize its real power and dignity.
Realization of this objective needs, in addition to the God blessings, the continuation of your help and the help of Iranian Muslim nation to our confrontation with the brutal government of America and the criminal regime of Israel.
In the end, please accept my and my nation’s appreciations. Your brother Ismail Haniyeh”
