A senior Hamas organizer in Gaza publicly admitted Tuesday that his organization consults with Iranian officials on a “daily basis,” further undermining the mainstream media’s narrative that Israeli forces were targeting “peaceful protesters” during last week’s riots.
Hamas leader Yahya al-Sinwar was speaking with regional news when he outlined the terror networks deep ties to the Islamic Republic, saying Iran helps his group with “money, equipment, and expertise.”

“Our resistance in the Gaza Strip has greatly developed its capabilities, first and foremost thanks to Allah, but also with the help of the righteous free men of our nation—first and foremost the Islamic Republic of Iran,” he told one reporter.
“We work together and coordinate and are in touch on an almost daily basis. The relations are at the best stage ever,” Al-Sinwar added.
