Era of Israel’s US-backed bullying in West Asia is over: Iran Parl. speaker

Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf says the era of Israel’s US-backed bullying in West Asia is over and the regime is heading to its demise.

Qalibaf made the remarks during an open parliamentary session in Tehran on Sunday as the Tel Aviv regime has resorted to crimes violating all international rules amid failures in its six months of genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.

“By targeting Iran’s consulate in Syria, the usurping Zionist enemy once again proved that it knows no boundaries in crimes and that it is so dishonorable and hated in the world that openly violates all international regulations,” he said.

“The era of bullying and saber-rattling by the Zionists in the region with the support of the United States has ended. Their actions show that they have heard the smell of their demise and elimination after the October 7 operation,” he added, referring to the historic raid conducted by the Palestinian Hamas resistance group against Israel.

On Monday afternoon, Israeli airstrikes destroyed the consular annex of Iran’s embassy in the Syrian capital of Damascus and killed 13 people, including seven members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Qalibaf said that the Iranian nation will mete out an “instructive and harsh” punishment to Israel that will hasten its decline.

“The more crimes the Zionist regime commits, the weaker it becomes … making the resistance more determined and motivated against itself,” he asserted.
