MEMRI TV: Hamas Leader Yahya Sinwar: If Not for Iran’s Support, We Would Not Have Our Missile Capabilities
Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar said in a May 30, 2019 speech that aired on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that the conflict with Israel will only end with the removal of the occupation from Palestine and with the Palestinians’ return to the “liberated and cleansed” Al-Aqsa Mosque.
He said that the Palestinians “suckled this spirit” from their mothers, who “breastfed [it] to their children along with the milk.”
In addition, Sinwar said that Grad and Fajr missiles that have been launched at Israeli cities such as Tel Aviv and Beersheba have been either provided by Iran or developed locally with the financial and technical support of Iran.
He threatened that Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities would be “crushed” if a future conflict with Israel erupts, and he added: “If not for Iran’s support for the resistance… we would not have obtained these capabilities.
Our [Arab] nation has deserted us in our difficult moments, while Iran has supported us with weapons, equipment, and expertise.”
The speech was delivered on the occasion of the Iranian-declared “Jerusalem Day.”
