The fall of Aleppo to Iran-backed pro-government forces has brought a
bubbling conflict between Iran and Hamas to the boil, with the former
making thinly-veiled threats to cut off the Palestinian group.
The threats came from Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, a member of the
Iranian Foreign Affairs and National Security Committee, in the wake of
increasing solidarity from Hamas to Aleppo.
In an interview last week with the reformist Qanun newspaper,
Falahatpisheh made clear there would be material consequences if Hamas
did not change its position on Iran’s role in the region, not least its
intervention in Syria.
