IRGC Commander: World Astonished by Palestinians' ProwessAdmiral Fadavi said that Iran and its allies are defending the oppressed people of Palestine and confronting the oppressors, adding that whoever fights the oppressors, the Islamic Republic supports them.

He stressed that Operation Al-Aqsa storm hit Israel so hard that all the bad people in the world quickly reached the occupied territories to prevent the collapse of the "criminal Israeli regime".

He pointed out that the US and the European countries sided with the Zionist regime with all their might.

Admiral Fadavi said that the people of Gaza created greatness in this battle, adding that the truce was the desire of Israel and Western countries because they were under pressure both from inside their countries and on the battlefield.

In early October, Hamas launched a multi-pronged surprise military operation via land, sea, and air against Israel. The group announced it was in response to the storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem and Israeli settlers’ growing violence against Palestinians. The attacks have so far killed more than 1,200 and injured over 5,500, according to Israeli officials. Hamas also announced it is holding between at least 200 and 250 hostages.

Following the multi-front attack by Hamas, Israel carried out heavy bombardment across the Gaza Strip, killing more than 14,500 Palestinians, including at least 6,000 children and over 4,000 women, wounding over 33,000 others, and leveling entire neighborhoods. The bombing, as well as enforced displacement orders by the Israeli Army, has also pushed 1.7 million people out of their homes.

Tel Aviv has also imposed a "complete siege" on Gaza, cutting off food, electricity, fuel, and water supplies. The move has plunged the blockaded territory into a humanitarian crisis.

The Gaza Health Ministry has confirmed that the healthcare system in the besieged territory has “totally collapsed due to the Israeli war”. Dozens of hospitals and tens of medical centers are out of service due to Israeli raids, according to the enclave's health ministry. The UN agencies have also warned that the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip is "catastrophic", calling for more international help as conditions deteriorate in the densely populated besieged enclave.

Iranian officials have in recent weeks cautioned that the current status in West Asia resembled a powder keg that could spiral out of control. They warned that if diplomatic pushes to stop Israeli assault are unsuccessful, there is a risk of the conflict escalating uncontrollably, with multiple regional players joining the fight.

Iranian officials say the Palestinian resistance movements do not face a shortage in munitions and other military equipment and are ready for a long battle with Israel and they are currently considering various options in response to the Zionist regime's act of aggression and relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip.

Tehran says the history of Israel is full of assassinations, massacre, torture, and killing of Palestinian kids, and described the Tel Aviv regime's atrocities and massacre of Palestinian women and children as indicative of the destitute of Zionists. Iranian officials say Tel Aviv has been struggling for more than 70 years to exit its identity crisis which has been mixed with genocide, plunder, forced displacement, and scores of other inhumane moves.
