A member of parliament in Iran says : "If we do not fight in Palestine, Gaza, and Lebanon we would be force to fight in streets of Tehran. This is a rule. We fight in enemy's home to prevent our country to be damaged."
Nader Ghazipour previously had said every explosion in Beirut and Baghdad makes the regime's life one month longer.
The Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei scorned cease fire in Gaza last week. In a speech on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, the feast marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, he said Israel "has gotten stuck and it will continue to get stuck from now on."
He said: "That is why you see that America, Europe and all global criminals have joined hands to force an imposed truce on the people of Gaza. They want to do this in order to save the Zionist regime."
The Palestinian death toll since the Israel’s attack on Gaza has reached over 1,800 killed and over 10,000 injured Most of which have been civilians, including many women and children.
