During a recent meeting, Hammouda Sabbagh, Speaker of the People’s Assembly, and his Iranian counterpart, Muhammad Baqir Qalibaf, reiterated Syria’s and Iran’s unwavering support for the Palestinian cause, with a particular focus on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
This meeting occurred on the sidelines of two significant events: the fifth emergency meeting of the Permanent Palestine Committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and the inaugural meeting of the Palestine Committee of the Asian Parliamentary Assembly (APA). Sabbagh emphasized that these sessions aim to forge a unified stance and initiate effective, coordinated actions. These actions are designed to exert pressure against Zionist forces, halt Israeli aggression, and enhance the delivery of humanitarian aid to Palestinians.
Sabbagh also highlighted the support the Zionist entity receives from the US and Western countries, along with the international community’s silence over its transgressions. He stressed that the Palestinian issue remains a core principle for both Syria and Iran.
Qalibaf echoed these sentiments, underscoring the pivotal role of Syria and Iran in the resistance axis supporting Palestine. He expressed optimism that the outcomes of these meetings would lead to tangible decisions aiding the Palestinian people.
