Before The Iranian Revolution
Before the Iranian Revolution, Iran and Palestine secretly engaged in trade and military relations, unbeknown to Israel. Iran provided the Palestinian Authority with arms to combat Israeli forces in occupied territories. However, as Iran also maintained clandestine relations with Israel at the time, it had to keep it's alliance with Palestine a secret from Israel, and it's relations with Israel a secret from Palestine. During the 1967 War, Iran provided Palestinian Militants with funds and ammunition. However, Palestine, as well as the Arab States, lost the war, and Palestinians asked to seek asylum into Iran. Iran, not intending to mar it's relations with Israel, chose not to provide the Palestinian refugees with shelter.
