(CNSNews.com) -- When questioning how a large number of missiles were reaching the Palestinian resistance, the leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, said “the role of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria in arming the Palestinian resistance is evident.”

“How did this huge number of missiles reach the Palestinian resistance? Who sent it and who delivered it? Who enabled Gaza, besides the will of Allah, to fight or destroy Israeli armaments? And how did anti-aircraft missiles reach into Gaza?” Lebanese news agency Al Manar quoted Nasrallah as saying on Monday.

Nasrallah said, “This is what we must reconsider today, we must realize who enabled Gaza today to stand on its feet and fight and bomb Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The role of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria in arming the Palestinian resistance is evident.”

Since Nov. 10, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and the Palesinian resistance in Gaza have been exchanging rocket fire in a new round of fighting. On Wednesday, an Israeli missile killed top Hamas commander Ahmed Jabari.

The U.S. state Department has designated both Hamas (Islamic Resistance Movement) and Hezbollah (Party of God) as terrorist organizations.
