According to an IRNA report on Thursday, Haniyeh, who is the chief of Hamas’ political bureau, said in his letter that the Palestinian nation praised Iran’s “unflinching and valuable” positions on the issue of al-Quds.
He thanked the support offered by the Iranian nation and the guidance provided by Ayatollah Khamenei for the resistance movement.
He pointed to the “major conspiracy” by global hegemonic powers against al-Quds and the people of Palestine, which he said was aimed at taking down the Gaza Strip — “the fortress of resistance” — terminating the battle against the Israeli regime, and bringing about the normalization of relations between regional puppet regimes and Israel.
Haniyeh also referred to the dangerous conspiracies underway against the Ummah meant to crush their resistance, saying that the plots have recently become more evident because of the policies adopted by US President Donald Trump towards Iran, Hamas, the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement, and the issue of al-Quds.
He also recounted the suffering of the Palestinian people caused by an Israeli-imposed blockade on the Gaza Strip.
“The US and some defeated leaders are seeking to end the issue of Palestine and resistance against the occupying regime [of Israel] so that the leaders that pine for gratifying the US and Israel could normalize their relations with the Zionist regime and make them public,” he said.
The Hamas official further described Trump’s decision to declare al-Quds the “capital” of Israel as a step toward disarming the resistance and removing the impediments to the Arab-Israeli alliance.
He appreciated Iran’s support for Palestine and the resistance in difficult times, saying the guidance provided by the Leader has reinforced the Palestinian resistance fighters in their battle.
He also stressed that the Palestinian Intifada (uprising) was the only way to foil the conspiracy against Palestine and al-Quds.
