Iran pledges legal help to Palestinians

Added On March 1, 2016

A spokesman with Iranian Foreign Ministry says Iran will continue its help to the Palestinians within legal frameworks.
The remarks come after some Palestinian officials accused Iran of intervening Palestinian internal affairs through fund aids.
Spokesman Hossein Jaber Ansari said on Monday that Iran offered assistance to the Palestinians within the legal framework and in accordance with the agreements between Iran and the legitimate representatives of Palestine.
The spokesman made the remarks in response to an accusation made by the Palestinian president's spokesman, Nabil Abu Rudeinah, on Saturday.
He described Iran's intention of delivering funds to Palestinian families as a "flagrant intrusion into internal Palestinian and Arab affairs."
But the Iranian spokesman failed to explicitly talk about Iran's assistance.
Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammad Fatah Ali said last week that Iran would provide funds to the families of the Palestinians killed during the conflicts with Israel since last October.
The ambassador said each family would receive 7,000 U.S. dollars, while each of those whose house was demolished would receive 30,000 dollars.
