Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reaffirmed Iran’s support for the Palestinian resistance against Israeli crimes following the regime’s recent killings in Gaza, saying Tehran plans to follow up on the issue at the UN and other international bodies.

In a Wednesday phone conversation with Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh, Zarif expressed solidarity with the Palestinian nation over the deaths of 18 protesters in Gaza on Friday at the hands of Israeli military forces, Press TV reported.

The top Iranian diplomat underlined the need for the United Nations and the Muslim world to take comprehensive measures in support of the Palestinian people and in condemnation of Israel’s atrocities.

Iran plans to pursue Israel’s latest crimes against Palestinians at the UN General Assembly, the Non-Aligned Movement and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Zarif added.

Haniyeh expressed gratitude for Tehran’s policies in support of the Palestinian resistance movement.

The Hamas official asked the Iranian foreign minister, who was in Ankara on Wednesday for a summit on Syria, to raise the issue of Palestine during talks with Turkish and Russian leaders.
