Iranian President Ibrahim Raisi held talks with Syrian and Algerian counterparts Bashar al-Assad and Abdelmadjid Tebboune. The parties touched upon the Israeli policy towards Palestine.

Raisi called on Syria and Algeria to form a "united and consistent" front in support of the Palestinians against Israel.

"Assad and Raisi stressed that these attacks reflect Israel’s aggressive policy and are seen as the continuation of its aggression against Syria and civilians, proving its weakness and impotence in the face of the Palestinian people’s resistance and courage," the Syrian president’s office said.

In a phone conversation with Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, Raisi said Iran and Algeria share common stances on regional and international affairs, particularly the Palestine issue and the protection of the Palestinians' rights, according to a statement posted on the website of the Iranian president's office.

The Algerian president said he hoped that Palestine would be "liberated" from the Israelis through cooperation among Muslim states.
