An Iranian IRGC Commander has hailed Palestinian terror groups, claiming 10,000 attacks have been perpetrated against Israelis this year.
Brigadier General Ramazan Sharif, the head of the Intifada and Quds Central Headquarters of the Islamic Propaganda Coordination Council, said on Tuesday that the formation of a unified anti-Israeli front from South Lebanon and the Syrian Golan Heights to Gaza and the West Bank has challenged Israel more than ever. Groups backed by Iran have carried out terror across three of Israel's borders in the last week, in addition to violent unrest in Jerusalem.
"The emergence of young Palestinian resistance groups and the implementation of amazing operations in the West Bank shows the determination of the new generation of Palestine to reclaim their motherland," he said.
He claimed the constitutional crisis in Israel has challenged the hope of many Israelis for survival and alleged “two million residents of the occupied territories are emigrating from Israel, but the Zionists seek to hide this”. He failed to substantiate the wild figure which would be the equivalent of roughly 20% of Israel’s Jewish population, claiming the reverse migration is the impossibility of thinking of a bright future, in ironic echoes of the sentiments felt by the people of Iran.
He announced plans by the Islamic Republic for a 2,500 strong naval parade for civilians to commemorate Quds Day, an annual event held on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan to express support for Palestinians and oppose Israel and Zionism, a region-wide trend begun by the Supreme Leader.
