Israeli Media: Taliban Assures Iran Of Sending Fighters To Support Hezbollah

(MENAFN- Khaama Press)

Israel army Radio, citing the newspaper Al-Akhbar, has reported that the Taliban has assured Iran that in the event of a severe war between Israel and Hezbollah, it will send thousands of its fighters to Lebanon to support Hezbollah.

This report comes after Hassan Kazemi Qomi, the special representative of the Islamic Republic in Afghanistan affairs, stated that Afghanistan is part of Iran's resistance axis against Israel and its allies, and if needed, suicide forces from the country would be sent to Gaza.

Hezbollah, like the Palestinian Hamas, is a militia group supported by the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region.

In recent months, Taliban leaders and Hamas have had several meetings, with the Taliban expressing support for Palestinian groups in their struggle against Israel.

The Islamic Republic refers to groups it supports and other factions fighting the Western alliance and Israel in the region as the“Axis of Resistance.”

Kazemi Qomi's remarks sparked widespread reactions in Afghanistan. The Taliban-affiliated Al-Mersad media criticized Iran's regional policy, questioning why Iran doesn't order Hezbollah to fight or directly battle Israel.

Hossam Badran, a member of Hamas' political bureau, stated in a March 2024 interview with the Taliban-controlled Bakhtar News Agency that Afghan jihad and the Taliban's victory inspired Hamas.

These actions have taken place amidst escalating conflicts between Israel and Hezbollah following recent Israeli military attacks on the Gaza Strip.

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has caused severe hardships for Palestinians, including casualties, destruction, and lack of access to essential services like healthcare, clean water, and electricity, worsening the humanitarian crisis.

Living conditions in Gaza have deteriorated, with widespread food insecurity, inadequate shelter, and profound psychological impacts, especially on children. International organizations call for urgent humanitarian aid to alleviate the suffering.
