Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the assassination of Hamas deputy leader Saleh al-Arouri in Beirut yesterday was a “cowardly terrorist operation” that proves “that the Zionist regime has not achieved any of its goals after weeks of war crimes, genocide and destruction in Gaza and the West Bank despite the direct support of the United States.”

Quoted in Iranian media outlets, he adds, “The evil activity of the terror machine of this terrorist regime in other countries is a real threat to peace and security and a serious alarm for the security of the countries in the region.”
