[Ed. – The surprise would be if this were NOT happening. Iran is pressing on all fronts to change as many facts on the ground as possible in a short time. The Iranians foresee, based on the progress of combat in Syria and Iraq, that a decisive watershed must be reached in the next several months.]
The aid reportedly included boxes of food and drink [for protesters], which came with a flyer attached depicting the Dome of the Rock and a quote attributed to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei reading, “With the help of God, Palestine will be freed. Jerusalem is ours.”
While Palestinian media reported that the food packages were provided by an Iranian youth movement, a PA intelligence official said it was clear that the Iranian regime was behind the aid.
“It is clear to us that the regime in Tehran, by means of its long arms, is behind this catering operation,” the official told the Israel Hayom daily in an article published Tuesday.
“The sums come to millions of shekels and the Iranians found an opening to reap the benefits and send a message to the Palestinian public right under Israel’s nose that it is Iran that looks out for them. The flyer attached to all the food packages and the quotes of Khamenei make clear who is behind these food baskets.”
