“My Mujahid brother, Mr. Ismail Haniyeh (who has been honored by God), Salam Alaykum I have received your letter where you elaborated on Palestine’s recent Jihad. Your resistance is resistance against oppression, unbelief and arrogance & it brings the Almighty God’s pleasure. ½,” writes Khamenei.
“Y our fight against oppression is a manifestation of the verse, “If you aid God’s cause, He will aid you & strengthen your steps.” By God’s Power, you will be victorious &purify the #HolyLand from the contamination of the usurpers, God willing.2/2 Your brother, Sayyid Ali Khamenei,” posted the Ayatollah.
