Tehran, Iran, Jan. 26 – Iran trumpeted on Thursday the victory of the Islamist group Hamas in the Palestinian elections as a vote by the people to “resist the Zionist regime”, the official state-run news agency reported on Thursday.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said, “Through its vote, the Palestinian nation chose the path of resistance and is loyal to this and supports it with all its might”.

Asefi said that the level of participation by the Palestinian people was a display of their determination to “fight and resist the occupiers”.

He said that Tehran sent its congratulations to “the Palestinians, the Hamas movement, all Palestinians combatants, and the great Islamic ummah”.

He added that the Islamic Republic hoped the “powerful presence” of Hamas on the political scene of Palestine would help the Palestinians “achieve their full rights”.

Asefi lambasted the United States for its position against Hamas and said, “The American government only supports elections that secure its goals and interests”.
