Iranian president warns of ‘outburst of anger’ among world’s youths over Israeli crimes

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi has warned of an outpouring of “anger” by the world’s youths over the continuation of the Israeli crimes against Palestinians.

Raeisi made the remarks in an interview with Algeria’s national television, which was published on Wednesday, during his recent visit to the North African country.

“Today, the Zionist regime’s oppression has exhausted the patience of not only the people of the region but also the people of the world,” he said.

“I think that if this situation persists, the anger of the youths of all nations, whether in the US and Britain or other countries in different continents, will be vented in another form,” he further commented.

Raeisi pointed to the recent self-immolation of an active-duty member of the US Air Force in protest at Israel’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip and the mass rallies held in European countries in support of Palestinians, expressing regret that their call for the end of Israel’s crimes has fallen to deaf ears.

The US and UK governments do not want to hear the voices of their own people and the world nations, therefore, they seek to expand the scope of the Gaza war, he explained.

Hamas: Biden administration responsible for death of US airman protesting Israel's Gaza war

Hamas: Biden administration responsible for death of US airman protesting Israel’s Gaza war

Hamas says the Biden administration is responsible for the death of a US soldier who set himself on fire outside the embassy of the Israeli regime.

Israel waged its brutal US-backed war on the besieged Gaza in October after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out its historic operation against the occupying regime in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

So far, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 30,631Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 72,043 others.

Raeisi urges global unity to rid region of ‘cancerous tumor’

Additionally in his remarks, the Iranian chief executive urged all countries to unite against the usurping entity and “remove the cancerous tumor from the region.”

“We believe that the pure blood of the Palestinian martyrs and the oppressed will mark the end of the Zionist regime,” he added.

Raeisi further said that the Israeli crimes against humanity and its war crimes in Gaza do not conform to any international law or convention.

“The current situation in Gaza … is a great scandal for the West, which unmasks the true face of the US,” he asserted.

Raeisi slams Western hypocrisy on Iran’s nuclear activities

The Iranian president also lashed out at nuclear-armed Western countries for their double standards.

He said they express concerns about Iran’s peaceful nuclear program while keeping mum on the Israeli regime that has hundreds of atomic warheads in possession, pointing to a threat in November 2023 by Israel’s so-called heritage minister Amichai Eliyahu to use atomic bombs against Gaza.

By raising alarm at Iran’s nuclear activities, Western countries are seeking to exert pressure on the Islamic republic, which is powerful and self-reliant and has developed an indigenous nuclear industry, Raeisi said.

“When the Zionist regime assassinated Iranian nuclear scientists, it thought that our nuclear industry would be grounded. However, the nuclear industry keeps working as it has become indigenous in our country.”

Israel is estimated to possess 200 to 400 nuclear warheads in its arsenal, making it the sole possessor of unconventional arms in West Asia.

It has refused to either allow inspections of its nuclear facilities or sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
