"We cannot send arms to Gaza because of its siege, but we have provided them (the Palestinians) with our experiences in manufacturing Fajr-5 missiles and today this missile is being manufactured (by Palestinians) in large numbers," Jafari was quoted as saying.

The Fadjr-5 is an Iranian made 333mm multiple rocket launcher system. This vehicle has been developed by the Shahid Bagheri Industries division of the Aerospace Industries Organization of Iran.

The Islamic republic extends technological aid and assistance to every Muslim standing against the arrogant powers, Jafari said, alluding to Israel and its western supporters, according to the report.

On Wednesday, Iranian Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani said Tehran has provided military aid to the Palestinian resistance groups, said Fars.

"We declare proudly that we have supported the Palestinian nation and Hamas and we have the honor to declare that we will stand beside the Palestinian people in the hardest and most difficult conditions," Larijani said on the sidelines of a rally staged by the Iranian parliamentarians in support of the Palestinians in Gaza.

"We are proud that our aid to the Palestinian people included financial and military aspects," the Iranian speaker stressed.

The Hamas military wing has claimed responsibility for the Fajr- 5 long-range missiles' attacks on Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in the ongoing conflict with Israel.
