"No Muslim population, including Iran, will tolerate the violation of oppressors and Zionists against Islamic holy sites", Rouhani said, according to Mizan.

"On the issue of Palestine (US) hands are tied and they can not advance their goals", Khamenei said. "American government officials have said themselves that we have to start a war in the region to protect the security of the Zionist regime", Khamenei said.
