Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian warns of new armed conflicts if Israel’s attacks on Gaza continue.
Amid rising tension in the Middle East, Iran has cast a shadow of uncertainty over stability in the region. Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian stated in an interview with Al Jazeera that Iran is contemplating the “expansion of war fronts” if the violence in Gaza is not ended. These claims are especially relevant in the context of recent attacks against Israel by the terrorist group Hezbollah in Lebanon, known for its close relationship with Iran.
“We cannot remain indifferent to what is happening,” Amirabdollahian said, emphasizing the urgency of the situation. According to the diplomat, the prolongation of the conflict makes the opening of new war fronts increasingly imminent, further complicating the already fragile security in the area.
During his stay in Qatar, Minister Amirabdollahian met with important Qatari leaders and Ismail Haniyeh, head of the political bureau of Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group. These meetings, reported by Iranian state media, highlight the accusations against Qatar for financing Hamas and other terrorist organizations in the Middle East.
In addition, the state agency IRNA reported on Iran‘s efforts with neighboring countries to send humanitarian aid to Gaza and establish a field hospital in Egypt, close to the conflictive border.
This situation has generated reactions in Israel. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urged the international community to unite against Hamas, warning Hezbollah and Iran sternly during a Knesset speech: “Do not test us; you will suffer serious harm.”
