Iranian official Larijani, Islamic Jihad leader deny reports of 5 Iranian citizens being arrested in Gaza in Tehran press conference, discuss Palestinian matter
Shallah himself called the report "a joke."
Regarding the Hamas-Fatah infighting over the past few days, Larijani said, "Right now there are conflicts in Palestine that need to be worked out, and we are trying to reach an agreement between them."
"The current conflict is not in the Palestinians' best interest, and we support Palestinian national unity," he stressed.
On his meeting with Shallah, Larijani said "the main topic I discussed with Ramadan Abdullah was how an atmosphere of internal Palestinian unity could be created."
Shallah explained that "Iran is a central and senior country that aids Muslims all over the world, especially on the Palestinian matter, and supports Palestinian factions fighting the Zionist regime."
Shallah explained that Iran is a country that supports the Palestinian's struggle, and he therefore visited the country in order to update the Iranian officials on "the recent developments and existing problems in the occupied territories, and to ask for their help."
