Iran’s support for Palestine based on its constitution: President
Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi says support for occupied Palestine is based on the Constitution of the Islamic Republic, adding that advocating for Palestinians has been a priority since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
Speaking at a conference in Tehran on Sunday, Raeisi emphasized that the tendencies of some regional countries do not compromise the constitutional principle behind the support for Palestine.
“Our support for Gaza and Palestine is based on the Constitution. Backing the oppressed is among the foundations of the Constitution. Thus, supporting Palestine has been the foremost issue of the [Islamic] Revolution since its onset,” he said.
“We cannot stop adhering to the principles. The inclinations of some parties in the region will not compromise this principle of the Constitution.”
The Iranian chief executive also described the Iranian Constitution as the most progressive among all countries.
He further cited an African jurist as saying that the Constitution of the Islamic Republic is a combination of democracy and ideals.
Israel waged the war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group conducted Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.
Iran hailed the historic Palestinian operation that shattered the Tel Aviv regime’s so-called myth of invincibility.
