Iran foreign minister warns conflict could expand if Israeli strikes don’t stop

Iran’s foreign minister says other parties could get involved if Israel’s attacks on the Gaza Strip don’t halt.

“If these organized war crimes that are committed by the Zionist entity don’t stop immediately, then we can imagine any possibility,” Hossein Amirabdollahian says. He does not elaborate but it was an apparent hint that Iran-backed groups could join the war.

“What is funny is that at a time when America is calling on parties for self-restraint, it is allowing the criminals in the fake Zionist entity to kill women, children and civilians in Gaza,” Amirabdollahian says.

“America cannot send weapons and bombs to kill women, children and civilians in Gaza and at the same time call on all sides for self-restraint.”

Amirabdollahian speaks to reporters in Beirut after a meeting with his Lebanese counterpart and talks with Hezbollah terror leader Hassan Nasrallah.
