Iran has long supported its Shia Muslim allies in the Palestinian territories.

Meanwhile, the decision will also create outrage among Muslims and fan the flames of a new Intifada, extremist moves, violence, and brutality.

Iran "will not tolerate a violation of Islamic sanctities", he said. Therefore, the Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns this act and calls on the worldwide organizations, influential countries, and especially the Islamic states, to maintain the stability of the region and prevent the United States from doing so, which is only for the benefit of the Zionist regime.
