A senior Iranian general says commanders from the US Central Command (CENTCOM) as well as the US Army and Navy have traveled to Tel Aviv to assist Israeli officials in their military onslaught against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.
“The Iranian Armed Forces have received information that commanders of the CENTCOM, as well as the US Army and Navy, have teamed up with Israeli commandants at an underground base in Tel Aviv to supervise and direct the Zionist regime’s brutal offensives against Palestinian people,” Major General Gholam-Ali Rashid, commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters, said at a gathering of Iranian police commanders and officials in Tehran on Tuesday.
He added, “This shows that the United States’ measures run counter to its claim of restraining the war in the region as thousands of destructive bombs and missiles have already been sent to occupied Palestine, and directions plus support for ground battles are being provided [to Israel].”
The high-ranking then lashed out at Washington for its hypocrisy and duplicity.
General Rashid also expressed confidence that the resilient Palestinian nation, together with fighters from Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Gaza-based resistance groups, will eventually triumph over Israel and the US, and will inflict losses on them.
Israel waged the genocidal war on the blockaded Gaza Strip on October 7 after Hamas conducted Operation al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity.
Since the start of the aggression, the Tel Aviv regime has been committing war crimes in Gaza, killing at least 8,525 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injuring some 21,048 others.
The Tel Aviv regime has imposed a “complete siege” on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
