Iran’s freshly elected president Massoud Pezeshkian wasted no time in reaffirming his dedication to bolstering the Islamic Republic’s legion of terror proxies

“I am confident that the resistance movements in the region will not allow this regime Israel to continue its warmongering and criminal policies against the oppressed people of Palestine and other nations in the region,” Pezeshkian wrote on X.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran has always supported the resistance of the people in the region against the illegitimate Zionist regime. Supporting the resistance is rooted in the fundamental policies of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the ideals of the late Imam Khomeini, and the guidance of the Supreme Leader, and will continue with strength,” he added.

Pezeshkian’s announcement comes as a bitter pill for many suffering Iranians.

Campaigning as a “reformist,” Pezeshkian secured victory in last Friday’s elections, marking a notable shift from his previous self-characterization as a “principlist,” a term often used to denote steadfast commitment to Islam’s radical terror doctrines, according to MEMRI.

Iran’s long-standing enmity towards Israel has been a defining feature of its foreign policy since the 1979 Islamic revolution. Hezbollah’s establishment in the 1980s marked the beginning of Iran’s strategy to attack Israel through proxy forces, a tactic that has since expanded to include Hamas and other notorious terrorist groups in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.

Many Iranians have grown increasingly disillusioned with the regime’s financial and military assistance to these heinous terror proxies. With Supreme Leader Ali Khameini continuously pouring millions into his war against Israel, the country’s own economy has crumbled driving millions of Iranians into poverty.
