Iran’s Quds Force chief applauds Hamas leader for Israel attacks


An Iranian state TV channel said the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force had a phone call Saturday with the head of the Hamas terror group, as the Gaza rulers’ fighting with Israel intensified and entered the sixth day.

Al-Alam, the Arabic-language service of the Iranian state television, reported that Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh spoke by telephone with Quds Force commander Esmail Ghaani on Saturday.

Ghaani reportedly praised Hamas as offering a “unique and successful answer” to Israel.\

At a rally in Qatar Saturday night, meanwhile, Haniyeh vowed Hamas would continue its “resistance” against the “Zionist enemy.”
