Iran threatened Hamas

According to the Jerusalem Post, Egyptian officials clarified the details of Mashaal’s meeting with Iranian parliament speaker Ali Larijani. Not only did he encourage Hamas and PIJ to fight on, but pressed them to do so. Larijani threatened to cut Iranian aid and military supplies should Hamas and PIJ accept the ceasefire.

Iran’s problem with the ceasefire is not so much that it suspends Islamic resistance to Israel’s existence, but with the fact that it was brokered by Egypt. Iran and Egypt are increasingly at odds for dominance in the region, which twenty years ago was unquestionably dominated by Israel.
