In a meeting with leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) terror group, Ramadan Abdullah Shalah, President Rouhani said: “There is no way, but jihad and resistance for the Palestinians against the usurper regime (Israel)”.

He also suggested that Palestinians should take advantage of the “strong argument” within world public opinion that “the Zionist regime (Israel) has never been after peace” and respond with violence.

President Rouhani also claimed that Israel was fuelling regional instability and blamed Israel for sectarian conflicts in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and North Africa.
