Palestinian resistance weakening Israel: Leaders adviser

Years of Palestinian resistance have weakened Israel and put the occupation force on the back foot, paving the way for great victories against the Tel Aviv regime, says a senior adviser to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

In a video message to a Quds Day conference in the besieged Gaza Strip on Thursday, Ali Akbar Velayati said that 40 years after Imam Khomeini"s declaration of Ramadan"s last Friday as the International Quds Day, Palestinians have been able to push back Israeli occupation forces and "reverse the regime"s expansionism."

"Although the past 40 years have had its own ups and downs, magnificent victories have been achieved such as the liberation of southern Lebanon, the liberation of Gaza and Israel"s constant defeats in wars of aggression against resistance forces in Gaza and Lebanon," Velayati said.

"UK, France treachery created Israel"

The veteran Iranian diplomat noted that the Tel Aviv regime came into existence due to "treacherous" deeds by the UK and other Western nations 70 years ago, an event Palestinians refer to as Nakba, or literally "the disaster."

"The UK and France first partitioned the countries in the region and then disarmed the Palestinian nation and made them easy prey for armed-to-the-teeth Zionists," he added.

"Nakba is not a disaster bound to a certain period of time," Velayati said. "It"s an ongoing disaster that we live each second."

"Seventy years later, however, the Palestinian people remain refugees but still maintain their strong and powerful identity."

Trump"s deal of century "shameful" for Arabs

Velayati said the "sad" status quo in the Muslim world, where some Islamic governments are "secretly" supporting Israeli crimes, has emboldened US President Donald Trump to speak of a so-called "deal of century" for resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

"Looks like Trump is planning to hand Israelis all they want by forcing a shameful solution upon Arabs and the Palestinians, and he already has the support of some Arab leaders," he argued.
