Head of Hamas Political Ismail Haniyeh received on Wednesday evening a phone call from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, in which he reiterated the Islamic Republic’s rejection of Trump’s plan.
Reaffirming Iran’s support for the Palestinian people, Zarif said that his country is ready to contribute to diplomatic and political action to endorse Palestinian rights.
The Trump’s deal is a “chance to unite the Palestinian people and Arab and Islamic nations behind the Palestinian cause and rights of the Palestinian people,” the Iranian FM pointed out.
The Hamas chief, in turn, hailed Iranian position in support of the Palestinian cause, reiterating the necessity of a unified Palestinian stance backed with a constant Arab, Muslim position to face off the “deal of the century”.
Haniyeh noted that Trump’s plan is intended to liquidate the Palestinian cause and abolish Palestinian national rights.
