Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday called on Muslims from around the world to help arm Gaza Palestinians in their fight against Israel.

Mr. Khamenei claims that while Israel and America seek to disarm Hamas, Iran says “the opposite ... the Muslim world has a duty to arm the Palestinian nation by all means.”

Iran, a staunch Hamas ally, does not recognise Israel and supports anti-Israeli groups such as the Palestinian Hamas and Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
