Palestinian groups welcome Saudi-Iranian rapprochement
Palestinian groups expressed support for the Saudi-Iranian rapprochement announced on Saturday.
“The Palestinian Presidency appreciates the Chinese role that contributed to reaching the agreement,” according to a statement from the office of President Mahmoud Abbas. “We hope that the agreement will lead to stability and enhance the positive atmosphere in the region.”
Tayseer Khaled, a senior official with the Palestine Liberation Organization’s Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP), said the agreement “deals a severe blow to the policy of hegemony pursued by successive US administrations and to the policy of the right-wing Israeli government.”
Khalil al-Haya, a member of the Hamas terrorist organization's political bureau, affirmed that the agreement is an “important step towards uniting the ranks of the Muslim community.”
Palestinian Islamic Jihad expressed hope that the agreement would have a “positive impact on the Palestinian cause and support the right of our people in their struggle.”
