British Palestinian Journalist Abdel Bari Atwan: PIJ Leader Nakhala Directing The War From Tehran Signals That He Is Not Alone, He Has Support From Iran, The 'Resistance Axis'

#9729 | 01:05

British Palestinian journalist Abdel Bari Atwan said that the fact that Ziyad Nakhala, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad secretary-general is directing the war in Gaza from Tehran is very significant, in a video posted on his YouTube channel on August 5, 2022. Atwan said that this shows that Nakhala has the support of the "resistance axis." He added that the Iranians are providing the Palestinians with weapons, Kornet missiles, technology, and combat expertise.

Abdel Bari Atwan: "Ziad Al-Nakhalah is directing the war in the Gaza Strip from Tehran. This is very significant. It means that he is not alone. The Jerusalem axis supports him. The resistance axis supports him. He is coordinating [the with Iranians]. He did not go to Tehran to catch some sun. Some people say that the Iranians are Zoroastrians and Persians...

"Brother, these are the people who help, send weapons, send Kornet missiles. They are the ones who provide [Palestinians] with technology and combat expertise. [Al-Nakhala] is directing the war from Tehran. This is very significant, not just with regard to the Palestinian cause, but to the conflict in its entirety."
