Who’s who of Iran-backed terrorists huddle in Tehran to discuss fight against Israel

Leaders of Iran-backed terror groups and militias fighting Israel met on the sidelines of late Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi’s funeral on Wednesday to discuss Gaza and “the continuation of jihad,” state media reports.

Among those attending the Tehran meeting of the so-called “axis of resistance” were Hamas politburo head Ismail Haniyeh, Hezbollah deputy Naim Qassem and Houthi spokesman Mohammed Abdulsalam.

Also there were Hossein Salami, commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and Esmail Qaani, commander of the Quds Force, the foreign operations branch of the guards, reports say.

Iran’s Fars news agency says representatives of Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Iraqi groups were also present at the meeting.

They discussed “the latest political, social and military situation in Gaza and the Al-Aqsa Flood operation and the role of the resistance front,” state broadcaster IRIB reports.

The meeting stressed “the continuation of jihad and struggle until the complete victory of the Palestinian resistance in Gaza with the participation of all resistance groups and fronts in the region,” IRIB adds.

Hezbollah’s Al-Manar channel also reports on the meeting, broadcasting photos.
