Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has reportedly told his Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani that the expansion of the Israel-Hamas war is “inevitable.”

“Due to the expansion of the intensity of the war against Gaza’s civilian residents, expansion of the scope of the war has become inevitable,” Iran’s Press TV quotes Amir-Abdollahian as saying in a phone call yesterday.

Iran and its terror proxies in Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq have been threatening a regional conflict since the start of the war sparked by Hamas’s brutal October 7 assault on southern Israel that killed some 1,400 people, most of them civilians and saw some 240 people taken hostage in Gaza.

The US has sent two aircraft carrier groups and a nuclear-powered submarine to the region in a bid to deter Tehran.

Qatar, which has close ties to Hamas, has been working to try to broker a ceasefire and a hostage release.
