Iran FM visits border with occupied Palestine, says Zionists only understand language of force

TEHRAN- As part of his tour of Lebanon, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian visited Maroun Al Ras village near the border with the occupied Palestine where he insisted on supporting the resistance movement against Israel.

Addressing reporters, Amir Abdollahian praised all martyrs who have lost their lives in the struggle to liberate Palestine, especially General Qassem Soleimani and his comrade Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.   

During his tour of the border point, Iran’s top diplomat reiterated Tehran’s unwavering support for Lebanon in tough times.

It is widely believed that primitive mentality only knows the language of force and this is true of the Israeli regime. More than seven decades of occupation shows that resistance is the only option to liberate Palestine.

The presence of Iran’s foreign minister in a nearest place to the Tel Aviv regime signals the Islamic Republic’s full support to the Resistance Front and proves to the occupation regime’s officials that only one wrong move can make them unable to see the next sunlight.  

Such a visit has stolen the limelight from the Israeli media because they cannot imagine Iran is capable enough to target them even at such a closest distance.

Many indicated that such a visit is a response to the Israeli officials’ recent trips to the countries in northern Iran, including Azerbaijan and Turkmenistan.   

Abdollahian also reiterated Tehran’s long held policy to hold a referendum in occupied lands with the participation of all native inhabitants to determine their destiny.
