Iran leader urges Palestinians to bring fight to West Bank

July 24, 2014 9:50 A.M. (Updated: July 24, 2014 10:49 P.M.)
TEHRAN (AFP) -- Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei urged Palestinians Wednesday to keep fighting Israel and to extend the conflict from Gaza to the occupied West Bank.

"The only way to deal with this savage regime is to continue resistance and armed struggle and extend it to the West Bank," the official IRNA news agency quoted Khamenei as saying.

Iran, which does not recognize Israel, is a supporter of the Palestinian Islamist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad that have been at the forefront of the fighting in Gaza.

Israel has killed more than 700 Palestinians in the assault on Gaza, the vast majority of whom were civilians, while Palestinian militants have killed 34 Israelis, 32 of whom were soldiers.

The West Bank and Gaza Strip have been under Israeli military occupation since 1967.
