Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Tuesday that his country will continue to support the Islamic Jihad terror group in Gaza as well as rival Hamas and Lebanon-based Hezbollah.

The three terror organizations have collectively fired thousands of rockets at Israel.

“We are not bound by religious differences; we equally supported Shiite #Hezbollah along w/#Hamas & #IslamicJihad and will keep doing that,” he posted on a Twitter account widely believed to be operated by his office, adding, “We strengthened our Palestinian brothers’ fist in #Gaza & other areas & will do so. As I already said #WestBank should also be armed like Gaza.”

In another Twitter post Khamenei said he believes the U.S. wants to keep Muslims at odds with each other. He claimed the U.S.-led coalition against the terror group ISIS is a “blatant lie” and added, “By the means of ISIS, US wants to keep the war among #Muslims alive.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Khamenei accused the West and world powers of failing to bring Iran “to its knees” regarding a long sought-after nuclear agreement.
