Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, cautioned Israel about possible regional escalation, stating, “If the Zionist aggressions do not stop, the hands of all parties in the region are on the trigger.”
Amirabdollahian emphasized that any aggression towards Gaza would lead to “new fronts of resistance” in the Middle East, laying the onus of potential escalations on both the United States and Israel.
Further highlighting Iran’s position, Amirabdollahian recently met with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in Qatar, focusing on the group’s actions in Israel and expressing continued cooperation. In a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi emphasized the need for France to step in and alleviate the “oppression” Palestinians face.
This comes as Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced intentions to “demolish Hamas” in the wake of Hamas militants’ attack on Israeli border towns. Despite these allegations, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, claimed Iran’s non-involvement in the recent Hamas attack on Israel but did acknowledge the perceived setbacks Israel faced in military and intelligence.
