“[Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader] Ramadan Abdallah [Shalah] said to me, ‘We want to strike Tel Aviv with Fajr-5 missiles’… We did it, and 3 million Zionists ran to bomb shelters in fear,” said Ali Akbar Velayati, advisor to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for international affairs, in an April 16 speech in southern Iran, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute.

In November 2012, Majlis member and former Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps official Javad Karimi said, “We sent the besieged Gaza 50,000 missiles and thousands of anti-tank rockets,” which “attests to a major victory in the conflict over Palestine in favor of the Iranian nation, and allowed Iran to once again prove its strength to the world.” To read more of these comments by Iranian officials, visit the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).
