Head of Palestinian Islamic Jihad meets Iran’s supreme leader

 Ziyad al-Nakhalah, the political leader of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), met with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Tehran on Thursday.

Khamenei told Nakhalah that Palestinians will "see final victory of the people of Gaza".
"The people of Gaza and resistance forces are adamant on standing their ground till final victory, and through God’s grace final victory will be realised in the not-so-distant future," Nakhalah said.

Khamenei went on to criticise the leaders of other Muslim-majority countries for their "passivity and lack of action".
