TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said the Zionist regime suffered a very big blow to its very existence by the resistance of Lebanese and Palestinian nations.
He made the remark in separate meetings with Ahmed Jibril, leader of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, and Ramadan Abdullah Mohammad Shallah, Secretary General of Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
During the meetings, the Iranian minister stressed the need for all-out support for resistance of Palestinian and Lebanese groups against the Zionist threats, the Islamic republic news agency reported.
He believed developments in the past decades proved that the spirit of resistance has not only failed to fade in the Palestinian nation but also reached a point where it has already weakened the Zionist regime, thanks to the strength, vigilance and bravery of both the Palestinian people and its leaders.
Vahidi further said victory of people over Zionists in southern Lebanon and also in Gaza were clear examples of the divine aids.
The Iranian defense minister also underscored Tehran's support for the resistance in Palestine and Lebanon and said Iranians will stand by the Palestinian nation till the victory of oppressed Palestinians and liberation of the holy Qods.
