Hamas Says Will Unite With Iran if Israel Attacks – NYTimes.com

A few days ago Syria and Iran signed a strategic military agreement whereby they will act together against the “zionist regime’s threat.”

Now Hamas has pledged to help Iran should Israel attack.

Islamist militant groups will fight alongside Iran if the country is attacked by Israel, exiled Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal said on Tuesday.

Israel has not ruled out military action against Iran if diplomacy fails to end a dispute over Tehran’s nuclear programme, which the United States and its allies suspect is aimed at building an atomic bomb. Iran denies such an ambition, saying it wants to generate electricity using nuclear power.

Iran has said it will retaliate if attacked, and security analysts believe it would mobilise militant allies such as Palestinian Hamas and Lebanese Hezbollah in its response.
