Ali Fadavi, the deputy commander-in-chief of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), has declared “the resistance will go on until the cancerous gland [Israel] is eradicated from the world map”.
He made the comments on Tuesday, echoing regime leadership statements reaffirming its support for its largest Palestinian proxy, Hamas.
Just after the Hamas invasion of Israel on October 7, Hossein Salami, the IRGC Commander, declared, “Today, the people of Palestine are pursuing and arresting Israeli soldiers without any fear, and Israel can no longer declare victory. Today signifies the end of occupation and aggression, with even the Americans unable to save them.”
Michael Kurilla, the commander of the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), has traveled to Israel to meet with Israeli officials. In a statement Tuesday, CENTCOM announced that one of Kurilla’s primary goals during his visit is to assess the defensive needs of the Israeli army and work to prevent the escalation of conflict in the region.
According to reports from France 24, a Russian-proposed resolution to condemn the recent hostilities in the region failed to receive sufficient support in the United Nations Security Council, with four votes in favor, four abstentions, and six votes against.
The reason for opposition by the United States and several other countries is reportedly the absence of Hamas’ name in the resolution as a party responsible for the deadly attacks on Israel on October 7.
While fears of a ground invasion into Gaza continue, the Israeli Defence Forces is keeping its cards close to its chest while it continues airstrikes on the strip.
