Iranian Leaders Admit Providing Hamas With Missiles And Rockets To Fight Israel

Par­lia­men­tary Rally in Tehran (sign reads “Death to Israel”)

Sev­eral Iran­ian lead­ers have taken credit for pro­vid­ing arms and rock­ets to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza, accord­ing to state­ments trans­lated by the Anti-Defamation League from the orig­i­nal Farsi.

Among those boast­ing of Iran’s aid to Hamas was Ali Lar­i­jani, Speaker of the Iran­ian Par­lia­ment and close con­fi­dant to Supreme Leader Aya­tol­lah Ali Khamenei. Dur­ing a par­lia­men­tary rally for Pales­tine on Wednes­day, Lar­i­jani admit­ted Iran’s involve­ment in arm­ing Hamas with weapons, “We announce with pride that we sup­port the peo­ple of Pales­tine and Hamas. We are proud that our help to the peo­ple of Pales­tine includes mate­r­ial and mil­i­tary (support).”

At a Basij cer­e­mony on Wednes­day, Islamic Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Guards Corps (IRGC) Major Gen­eral Muham­mad Ali Ja’afar acknowl­edged that Iran “can­not send weapons there (to Gaza),” but made it clear that Iran has “given theme (Hamas) the nec­es­sary tech­nol­ogy for the Fajr 5 and today mass quan­ti­ties of this mis­sile are being pro­duced.” At the same cer­e­mony, Vice Chief of State of the Armed Forces Masoud Jaza­y­eri warned Israel that “No Iran dome will be able to tol­er­ate the mis­siles of the resis­tance,” and that Pales­tin­ian ter­ror groups have many weapons capa­bil­i­ties “that have not arrived on the war scene yet.”
