Narrator: "The recent escalation of the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians [began] as the leader of a Palestinian militia visits Tehran.
"As Israel's military fighter jets initiated Operation Breaking Dawn, the top officials of the Islamic Republic [of Iran] were hosting Ziyad Nakhalah, Sec.-Gen. of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. IRGC Qods Force Commander Esmail Qaani has confirmed that at least 15 operations against Israel are carried out every day under the guidance of the Islamic Republic [of Iran]. Likewise, IRGC Commander-in-Chief Hossein Salami has stated, following his meeting with Nakhalah, that the Islamic Republic will exhaust all means to support the Palestinian militias, as it always does."
