( Iran, a funder of the Gaza-based terrorist group Hamas, on Saturday praised the unity pact between Hamas and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah party, without directly mentioning the deal.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran welcomes any act of unity, solidarity and national reconciliation among Palestinians against the Zionist occupiers (Israel),” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency.

“Iran backs any decision toward realization of precious ideals against an aggressive and expansionist regime,” Afkham added.
