Iran warns of ‘far reaching consequences’ if Israel does not halt Gaza campaign

Iran’s mission to the UN repeats its warning that the conflict between Israel and Hamas could widen if Israel continues striking Gaza, seen as a veiled threat to deploy its proxy terror group Hezbollah or take action itself.

Accusing Israel of “war crimes and genocide,” the mission says “the situation could spiral out of control & ricochet far-reaching consequences,” placing the blame on the UN Security Council.

On Thursday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian warned the “Axis of Resistance” could respond to Israeli “crimes,” after a meeting in Lebanon with Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah and others.
