Commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) assured the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement that he will proceed with the strategy of his predecessor, Lt. General Qassem Soleimani, to support the Palestinian resistance forces.
In a message to leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad Ziyad al-Nakhalah, Brigadier General Esmaeil Qa’ani paid tribute to former leader of Islamic Jihad Movement Ramadan Abdullah Shalah for devoting his life to resistance and efforts to liberate Palestine.
Commending the late Palestinian leader for his strenuous efforts in the fight against the Zionist regime, the Iranian general called on the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement to follow the path of Ramadan Abdullah until the ultimate liberation of holy al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Brigadier General Qa’ani finally gave an assurance that he will stick to the strategy of Lt. General Qassem Soleimani and will stand by the Palestinian forces to strengthen the axis of resistance.
The former head of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement died on June 7. Shalah was born in Gaza in 1958 and became the head of the movement in 1995 after the assassination of Fathi Shaqaqi.
Ziad al-Nakhala was chosen to lead the Palestinian Islamic Jihad Movement in 2018 because of Shalah’s illness.
