Reports from various watchdog organizations monitoring foreign media have revealed that Iran is funding the Palestinian terrorist organizations attacking Israel, just a month after it was announced that President Biden intended to lift sanctions on Iran and reinstate the counterproductive Iran nuclear deal.
In a transcript provided by Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Palestinian Islamic Jihad Official Ramez Al-Halabi said, “The mujahideen in Gaza and in Lebanon use Iranian weapons to strike the Zionists. We buy our weapons with Iranian money. An important part of our activity is under the supervision of Iranian experts. The contours of the victories in Palestine as of late were outlined with the blood of Qasem Soleimani, Iranian blood.”
Later, Al-Halabi added, “I am not sorry, I am proud to say that the rockets that are used to pound Tel Aviv have an Iranian signature on them, the signature of Qasem Soleimani. The Kornet missiles that we use to blow up the Israeli tanks – the pride of the Israeli and global defense industry – are the Kornet missiles of Qasem Soleimani and Iran. The guns that we use to shoot at the Israeli enemy… Those who use these guns were trained by our brothers in the IRGC. We say this loud and clear.”
David A. Daoud, a research analyst at the United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), posted a similar clip on Twitter with the caption, “Palestinian Islamic Jihad Quds Force Brigade spox thanks ‘Resistance Axis, headed by Islamic Republic of Iran,’ for the addition of Badr-3 missiles to PIJ arsenal.”

In the past week, Palestinian terrorist organizations have launched over one thousand Iranian-funded missiles at Israel – a month after reports of Biden’s plans to reinstate the Iran nuclear deal and lift sanctions on Iran. As previously reported, “The Iran nuclear deal was widely criticized as Iran used the funds acquired from the deal, estimated to be between $100 to $150 billion, to fund terrorist organizations in the Middle East. Unsurprisingly, Iran also secretly violated the nuclear deal after it was passed.”
“In 2019, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, revealed that JCPOA negotiations had required Iran to destroy parts of their nuclear reactors by filling them with cement, but Iran secretly acquired replacement parts so that the functionality of the reactors would not be ultimately affected. Salehi also revealed that pictures of the reactors filled with cement had been photoshopped.”
