Tehran: Iran`s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has urged Palestinians to keep fighting Israel and to extend a conflict that has killed nearly 700 Gazans to the occupied West Bank.

"The only way to deal with this savage regime is to continue resistance and armed struggle and extend it to the West Bank," the official IRNA news agency quoted Khamenei as saying.

Iran, which does not recognise Israel, is a supporter of the Palestinian Islamist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad that have been at the forefront of the fighting in Gaza.
