TEHRAN (AFP) -- Tehran will "accelerate" arming Palestinians in the occupied West Bank in retaliation for Israel deploying a spy drone over Iran, which was shot down, a military commander said on Monday.

"We will accelerate the arming of the West Bank and we reserve the right to give any response," said General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of aerial forces of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, in a statement on their official website sepahnews.com.

The warning comes a day after the Guards said they had brought down an Israeli stealth drone above the Natanz uranium enrichment site in the center of the country.

This is ridiculous. How would they manage to arm the Westbank when this region is under full Israeli control?

The second half of the sentence is a bit more interesting "...and we reserve the right to give any response ..." Probably means 'just waiting to bait you & kick your a**'.

Yet Iran has been denying all along that they did not arm Hamas. Guess lies like all other statements from them.

Believe me if Iran wants to arm the Palestinians they will find a way. Everything has its price nowadays. Even an Israeli will get in the action if the price is right.

It is no more difficult for Palestinians to recieve weapons in the West Bank than it was for them to recieve weapons in Gaza. Why should Palestinians put up with being killed randomly by settlers and IDF? Times have changed and Gaza found IDF's Achilles Heel. 50 days and the rockets were increasing not decreasing. IDF didn't make a dent. IDF succeeded in racking up war crimes offences against themselves. $6MILLION A DAY FOR iSRAEL.
