Ismail Haniyeh: Iraq constitutes the strategic depth of the Palestinians

AA / Gaza

The head of the political bureau of the Palestinian movement Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, said on Saturday in a telephone interview with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kazemi that Iraq was the strategic depth of the Palestinians.

This is what emerges from a statement released by the Palestinian Islamic resistance movement.

The Palestinian leader also expressed his joy to Al-Kazemi after the latter survived the assassination attempt last Sunday.

And Haniyeh added that Iraq was and still constitutes the strategic depth of the Palestinian Cause and represented a protection for the Palestinian people in their quest for independence.

For his part, Al-Kazemi underlined, during this telephone call, his attachment to wisdom and patience in the face of this delicate phase in the life of the Iraqi people, wishing the Palestinian people victory and unity in the face of the challenges and dangers, the statement said.

Last Sunday, the Iraqi army announced in a statement that Al-Kazemi had survived an assassination attempt carried out by three drones loaded with explosives, two of which had been shot down. The third exploded at the residence of the Iraqi prime minister in the capital, Baghdad, injuring members of Al-Kazemi’s close guard.
