The spokesman of Palestinian resistance movement Islamic Jihad in Tehran says the aggression launched on October 7 inflicted heavy casualties on the Israeli regime without the regime being able to achieve “any of its goals”.

Nasser Abu Sharif noted the losses inflicted on the regime’s economy and “the regime is completely paralyzed now.”
“The main goal of the Zionist regime was to destroy the resistance forces, but, despite all the brutality and crimes [it committed] and unprecedented support it received from the arrogant powers, it could not achieve anything,” Nasser Abu-Sharif said in an interview with ISNA.
His remarks come as Israel was forced to reach a ceasefire agreement with Hamas resistance movement based on the terms of the group.
Abu-Sharif described the four-day ceasefire which took effect on Friday as “an opportunity to deliver aid, water, food and medicine to women and children in Gaza and provide shelter to the displaced people.”
The envoy noted that the Israeli aggression has exposed “the reality and cruelty” of the Western countries that support the occupying regime.
The West “doesn’t respect international laws, moral rules and freedom.”
Elsewhere in his remarks, Abu-Sharif praised and appreciated Iran’s stance on the situation in Gaza, referring to the remarks made by President Ebrahim Raeisi in the emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) that was held in Riyadh earlier this month.
However, the envoy slammed some Arab regimes for their failure to take practical steps in support of Palestinians.
“Unfortunately, countries that have ties with the Zionist regime and share a border with Gaza, such as Egypt, could not adopt a serious stance.”
Abu-Sharif downplayed statements made by some Arab countries in which they condemned Israel’s onslaught, stressing that “practical steps are more important.”
He further said that Arab regimes can’t allow even “a glass of water” to enter Gaza without Israel’s permission, describing all ties with Israel as “a stab in the back of the Palestinian nation.”
He urged countries that maintain ties with Tel Aviv to “completely cut their relations” with the occupying regime.
