According to Iran, the terrorist group Hamas is very thankful for all the help provided to attack Israel.


"Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have expressed their gratitude to the Islamic Republic of Iran for helping them during the recent eight-day Israeli war," claims propaganda outlet PressTV. "Palestinians have installed large billboards on three major road junctions in the besieged strip reading 'Thank you Iran.'

"Iran supplied Palestinian resistance movements with the technology to develop Fajr-5 missiles, which hit Tel Aviv and al-Quds (Jerusalem)."

The story includes a picture of a sign that's supposedly in Gaza that reads, "Thanks and gratitude for Iran." The caption reads, "Palestinians have installed large billboards on three major road junctions in the Gaza Strip which say 'Thank you Iran.'" The sign is translated into Arabic, English, Farsi, and Hebrew.

Iran is the largest state-sponsor of terrorism.

The Iranian organ claims it is now sending aid to Gaza.

"Earlier today, Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS) said that the first shipment of the Islamic Republic’s humanitarian aid for Gaza is ready to be sent to the coastal strip," claims PressTV. "IRCS director for international affairs Shahabeddin Mohammadi Eraqi said on Wednesday that the organization has prepared the aid consignment according to a list of people’s needs provided by the office of Palestine Red Crescent Society in Gaza."
