The chief commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has celebrated the “stunning” defeat inflicted on Israel at the hands of Palestinian resistance fighters, saying their operation left the occupying regime and its allies “crumbled together.”
Major General Hossein Salami made the remarks on Thursday at a summit in the holy city of Mashhad, as the Tel Aviv regime remains in shock over the successful Operation Al-Aqsa Storm that was conducted by the Hamas resistance group on October 7.
“Their defeat in Operation Al-Aqsa Storm was one of the most unforgettable, stunning and unprecedented defeats that crumbled the US, the UK and Israel together,” he said.
“The United States bears responsibility for today’s developments in Palestine as it has been trying for years to portray the occupying regime as an angel of democracy and create a [positive] image for them.”
Salami also noted that the US is seeking to resuscitate Israel after its humiliating defeat.
“In the Muslim world, the Zionists are like an unwanted foreign object that has been implanted in this region and start new bleedings every time and again,” he added.
Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm in response to Israel’s violations at al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East al-Quds and growing settler violence against Palestinians.
The surprise raid shook the occupying entity’s security establishment, leaving 1,400 Israelis dead.
In response, the Tel Aviv regime launched deadly strikes on the besieged Gaza Strip, killing 7,165 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injuring 18,000 others.
It has also imposed a “complete siege” on Gaza, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living in the coastal enclave.
