Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh has complained about anti-Hamas scheme of the Arab states, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Wednesday.
In a telephone conversation with Larijani, the Hamas leader said that regrettably some Arab leaders had accepted a plan to dispatch forces to Gaza.
Addressing Majlis formal session, Larijani said the prime minister of the democratically elected government of Hamas made the remarks in his recent telephone conversation with him.
"Haniyeh regretted that the Arab League had been ready to dispatch forces to the Gaza Strip during their recent meeting."
Haniyeh said that such a decision would help Israel bolster its security.
The move will not help the Palestinian oppressed people restore their legitimate rights, Larijani said.
Condemning the scheme agreed by certain Arab states, the speaker reiterated Iranian parliament's support for the oppressed Palestinian nation and the Haniyeh government.
He underlined the need for resistance of the Palestinian nation to Israeli aggressions.
Although Israel has signed ceasefire agreement with Hamas government, its incursions on the Gaza Strip takes tolls on defenseless Palestinians systematically.
Larijani said that the Muslim nations worldwide will display their stand against the anti-Hamas scheme of the Arab states during the rallies to be held on the Qods Day (the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan).
