Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that his country "will defend" the Palestinian people in "any way that we can" and encouraged them to continue "fighting," according to Iran's semi-official Press TV news agency.
“The Intifada of Palestinian people in the West Bank has started and people are fighting [against the Zionist regime],” Khamenei said.
“About 60 years have passed since the occupation of Palestine and these people have changed for a number of generations, but the cause of Palestine still exists,” Khamenei added.
“We will defend the movement of the Palestinian people in any way that we can."
