Official CPP Statement On Iran’s Retaliatory Strikes Against Israel


Marco Valbuena | Chief Information Officer | Communist Party Of The Philippines

April 14, 2024

The Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and Filipino revolutionary forces consider the missile and drone attacks of the Islamic Republic of Iran against the Zionist regime’s military bases as a just and measured response to Israel’s attack on the Iranian consulate in Syria on April 1, which killed 18 officers and men of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard.

Iran’s attacks penetrated the much-vaunted Iron Dome defense system and punctured a big hole on the arrogance of the Zionist regime. It has emboldened and inspired millions of people around the world, especially the Palestinian people. They see Iran’s attacks as just retribution for the relentless and genocidal US-backed war being waged by Israel in Gaza, which have killed more than 33,000 Palestinians since October 2023.

Iran’s retaliation comes after decades of restraint over continued attacks by the Zionist regime. In years prior, the Zionist Israel carried out at least six assassinations against Iranian nuclear scientists, killing five. It also worked hand-in-hand with US military forces which carried out the 2020 drone assassination against Iranian top general Qassem Soleimani in Iraq.

After carrying out her retaliation, Iran declared that “the matter can be deemed concluded.” We join in condemning threats of further escalation coming from Israel and the US government which has publicly declared “ironclad support” to Israel.

We express our solidarity with the Palestinian people as they continue to intensify their resistance, armed and otherwise, to push back against US-supported Israel from Gaza and regain the rest of their homeland.

We urge the Filipino people and peoples around the world to continue rallying support for the Palestinian people and demand that the US government, Benjamin Netanyahu and his officers be held accountable and punished for the countless war crimes committed by the Zionist Israel.
