Despite Instagram’s blockade, Iran still criticizes British actions against Palestine — RT World News

Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has doubled its criticism of Britain’s designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization, claiming that the British move is only a tool to criminalize supporting the Palestinian cause.

According to Iranian media reports, a post shared by Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Instagram on Saturday has been deleted by the social media giant. Amir Abdullahian criticized the British government’s decision to list Hamas as a terrorist organization and reiterated his support for the Palestinians.

“The rights of the Palestinian people cannot be violated by distorting reality,” According to local media reports, the deleted post has been read.

Said Khatibzad, spokesman for the Iranian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, reiterated Tehran’s position in a tweet on Monday. “Western countries’ identification of terrorism has become a tool to criminalize grassroots support for the Palestinian cause,” The spokesperson wrote, adding, “These #phony_designations are not only aimed at groups resisting apartheid in Israel, but also aimed at the civil society of these countries.”

On Friday, British Home Secretary Priti Patel made Hamas completely illegal, marking it as a terrorist organization. The Israeli government preemptively praised Britain’s leadership.

Hamas completely controlled the Gaza Strip in 2007 after winning the 2006 general election, but it has been banned by the European Union and the United States.

Hamas stated in a statement that it has the right to resist occupation by all available means. “Including armed resistance.”
