Hassan Kazemi Qomi, Iran's Special Representative for Afghanistan says that if necessary, "more than one army of suicide bomber forces" will be deployed from Afghanistan to support Gaza.
The Iranian envoy told state-controlled Ufogh TV that Afghanistan, although geographically distant from Gaza, is considered part of the "Axis of Resistance”.
Iranian government designates the groups it supports, along with others combating the Western coalition and Israel in the region, as the "Axis of Resistance.”
In response to whether he was referring to "the people of Afghanistan" or "Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban," Qomi stated that Afghanistan has been engaged in a 40-year war against the "occupier”, emphasising that this war is not specific to one nation or group.
While Iran supports Hamas and other Palestinian groups against Israel, the Taliban regime has primarily limited itself to issuing statements against "Israel's crimes" and organising small rallies in support of the people of Gaza.
