US will suffer ‘significant damages’ if Gaza war expands:Iran
Iranian foreign minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said the United States will suffer “significant damages” if the Gaza war spirals into a bigger conflict, Al Jazeera reported on Sunday.
“We have conveyed our message to the Zionist regime through its allies that if they do not cease their atrocities in Gaza, Iran cannot simply remain an observer,” Iranian state media cited Amirabdollahian as telling the network.
The Iranian minister urged Muslim countries to work for an end to the “war crimes committed by the apartheid Zionist regime.”
He reiterated the importance of an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) under the current circumstances.
For his part, the Qatari emir expressed concern about the humanitarian situation in Gaza and said Qatar’s stance on the Palestinian issue would never change as it prioritizes an end to the crimes of Israel in the besieged enclave.
On October 7, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched multi-pronged strikes on Israel and penetrated deep into the territories occupied by the regime for decades. Operation Al-Aqsa Storm took Israel by surprise. It was a response to the regime’s recurrent desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque and decade-long atrocities against the Palestinians.
