ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Hard-line Iranian student groups are asking the government to authorize volunteer suicide bombers to leave Iran and fight against Israel in response to the Israeli assault on the Gaza Strip.

The government of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has not yet responded to the request Wednesday.

Some student groups and conservative clerics are signing up volunteers after Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, issued a religious decree on Sunday that said anyone killed defending Palestinians in Gaza against Israeli attacks would be considered a martyr.

Iranian hard-line groups have issued calls for suicide volunteers to go to Israel in the past, but there is no record of any of them ever carrying out an attack.
