"Palestine" is the world's top priority, the Iranian president said.

Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi declared Hamas’s victory over Israel at an event in Tehran on Sunday, marking 100 days since the terrorist group’s deadly onslaught of the northwestern Negev.

Speaking at the International Conference of Al-Aqsa Storm and Awakening of Human Conscience, Raisi said that “with their initiative, the Palestinians have raised the level of war from a fight using stones to a war using missiles and drones. We have also declared that we will support Palestine and the resistance groups.

“Palestine has emerged victorious and the Zionist regime and its allies have bitten the dust,” he added.

The Iranian president claimed that Jerusalem had violated more than 400 international resolutions, treaties and statements, and warned against normalization efforts with the Jewish state as not bringing security “in any way” either to Israel or to the Arab and Muslim countries signing the agreements.

“Today, it has become clear to everybody in Palestine that the Zionist regime proceeds with its acts of aggression after every treaty,” he said.

Raisi said that “Palestine” was the world’s top priority and emphasized that “resistance” was the only option against Israel.

“Peace talks were of no use, the end of Israel is inevitable,” he stressed.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei tweeted in English and Hebrew last week that Israel’s “crimes” will still be remembered after the Jewish state is gone.

“The crimes of the Zionist regime will never be forgotten. These crimes will not be forgotten even after the Zionist regime is destroyed, by the grace of God. Authors will write in books that these people killed thousands of children and women in a matter of weeks,” the country’s top authority wrote in Hebrew in English on Tuesday and in Hebrew on Wednesday.
