(Worthy News) - Iran's foreign ministry on Wednesday reiterated its support for Hamas and other anti-Israel terrorist groups and said that aiding those who "stand against the Zionist regime is a principle of Iran's policy."
The Islamic Republic's renewed backing of Hamas comes amid reports that relations between the two have been strained in recent months. However, Iran denies that this is the case and made clear this week that it will continue to back terrorist entities that seek Israel's destruction.
"Iran's support for all resistance groups continues similar to the past," said Marzieh Afkham, a spokeswoman for Iran's foreign ministry, to reporters in Tehran when asked whether the country's position on Hamas had shifted. [ Source ]
