Tehran's Friday prayer leader denounces Israeli regime’s acts of aggression

Date:30/08/1393
Tehran’s interim Friday prayers leader Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati has denounced Israeli regime’s acts of aggression against Palestinians, saying the Tele Aviv regime is pressing ahead with its project to Judaize al-Quds.
According to Press TV, Ayatollah Jannati told worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in Tehran, “The Zionists don’t let Muslims into al-Quds, but instead let in extremist Jews and build houses for them so that they would not need military forces anymore.”
He also hit out at a recent decision by the Tel Aviv regime to set up 2,000 more settlement units in the West Bank, saying the move was part of a project to push Palestinians out of their homes.
Ayatollah Jannati also criticized Egypt’s refusal to reopen the Rafah border crossing as the only "breathing space" for the Palestinian people, saying Cairo has turned its back on Muslims.
Ayatollah Jannati added that Egypt’s establishment of a buffer zone along the border with Gaza also served the interests of the Israeli regime. 
Last month, Egyptian authorities sealed the crossing -- Gaza's only land terminal that bypasses the Occupied Lands -- after the October 24 attacks targeting Egyptian military personnel killed some 30 Egyptian soldiers. Gaza has been blockaded since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standards of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.
