Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has warned that new war fronts would open if US continues its all-out support for Israel as the Tel Aviv regime presses ahead with its war crimes and genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
In an interview with Bloomberg Television published on Saturday, Amir-Abdollahian said the US’s unconditional support for Israel has escalated the regime’s war against the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas and the killing of civilians, especially women and children.
“If the Israelis do not stop the war and continue with the killing and crimes [against the Palestinians], the opening of new fronts will be unavoidable, and that will put Israel in a new situation that will make it regret its actions,” he added.
He called out the glaring double standard of the United States, saying, “The US is advising others to show self-restraint, but it has sided completely with Israel,” which is described by international law as an “occupying power.”
The top Iranian diplomat emphasized that the continuation of the US’s full support for Israel would spiral the situation out of control in the region, warning that it would be detrimental to Washington as well.
The Israeli regime has been waging a brutal war against Gaza since October 7, when Hamas and its fellow Gaza-based resistance movement, the Islamic Jihad, launched their biggest operation against the occupying entity in years.
The surprise Palestinian operation, dubbed Al-Aqsa Storm, came in response to the regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.
The death toll in Gaza since the start of the Israeli aggression has exceeded 8,000, 70 percent of whom are women and children.
