Iran's army chief has proclaimed to Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh that Israel's once perceived invincible image has been 'shattered'. This bold declaration came during a meeting in Tehran, where the two leaders discussed the ongoing conflict and the Palestinian issue, which Iran considers a central aspect of its strategic policies.

The Iranian Chief of Staff, Mohammed Bagheri, emphasized the importance of the Palestinian cause to the Islamic Republic and expressed solidarity with Hamas's stance against Israel. The meeting underscored Iran's support for Hamas and its resistance against Israeli actions in the region.

Haniyeh, the head of Hamas's political bureau, has been a vocal critic of Israel, blaming it for the lack of progress in achieving a truce deal in Gaza. He has demanded a complete halt to the war and insists on the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza, along with the lifting of the siege.

The Iranian foreign ministry released images of the meeting, highlighting the close ties between Tehran and the Palestinian organization. This encounter comes at a time when tensions are high, and the geopolitical landscape of the Middle East is in a state of flux.

The statement from Iran's military chief is indicative of the shifting perceptions in the region and represents a challenge to Israel's strategic position.
