Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari made the remarks in an interview with reporters in Tehran on Wednesday when asked if Iran had given Hamas Fajr-5 missiles, which were recently launched from Gaza into Israel.
 
“We did not directly send these missiles to Gaza, but its technology was transferred from Iran to the resistance, and a large number of these missiles are being manufactured,” he added.   
 
Asked if Iran sends weaponry to Gaza, Jafari stated, “Iran provides technological assistance to help the world’s Muslims and the oppressed so that they can stand up to tyrants and the hegemonistic system, and what we did in Gaza was based on the same approach.”  
 
“We cannot send missiles to Gaza but have transferred the technology to all oppressed nations, including Gaza,” he added. 
 
Replying to a question about whether Iran is opposed to ceasefire between Gaza and Israel, Jafari said, “We want a ceasefire that will be in favor of the people of Gaza.” 
 
He added, “If they make the slightest compromise with the occupying Israel, it will be against their interests, and victory will be achieved after savoring the sweet taste of resistance.”
