Iranian military chief meets Hamas leader in Tehran

Iran’s military chief, Mohammed Bagheri, has received the leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, in Tehran as the Palestinian  organisation continues to fight Israel in the Gaza Strip.
Almost six months after the start of the war in Gaza, the Iranian general paid tribute to the Islamist organisation’s fight against Israel, local media reported on Friday.
Bagheri described the Hamas massacres in Israel on October 7, which marked the start of the war, as a pride-bringing operation that had dismantled the myth of Israel’s indestructibility.
He said it also made Palestine a priority issue in the Islamic world and the entire world.
Haniyeh, head of the Hamas politburo, is in Iran for talks for the second time since the outbreak of the Gaza war.
Haniyeh also met top politicians and spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the capital.
Tehran is considered the most important supporter of the Islamist organisation, which is classified as a terrorist organisation by the EU, the U.S., and Israel.
Iran’s leadership rejects any direct involvement in the unprecedented attacks on October 7.
