In a January 6, 2020 speech in Tehran that aired on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon), Hamas Political Bureau Chairman Ismail Haniyeh offered his condolences to Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, to the Iranian leadership, and to the Iranian people for the January 3 killing of IRGC Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani by the United States. He praised Soleimani for having provided the Palestinian resistance with what it needed in order to attain the power, steadfastness, and devotion it has today. In addition, Haniyeh said that the Americans’ “heinous crime” reflects the arrogant and thuggish spirit that covers for the massacres and bloodshed carried out by Israel in Palestine. He said that such assassinations only make Muslims more determined to move forwards towards the liberation of Jerusalem, Palestine, and the will of the Islamic nation. Haniyeh added that Soleimani is “a martyr for Jerusalem.”
