Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian arrives in the Syrian capital of Damascus to discuss developments in the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, and wider regional conflicts, Arabic media sources report.

His arrival in Syria comes after he visited Lebanon over the weekend and ahead of the final leg of his trip which will see him visit Qatar, where Hamas’s top leaders reside.

In Lebanon on Saturday, Abdollahian claimed that Iran “absolutely never sought to expand” war in the region,” saying he believes that “war is not the solution.”

Hamas, which carried out the deadliest terror attack in Israel’s history on October 7, is backed and funded by Iran, as are the Hezbollah terrorist group in Lebanon and the Houthi rebels in Yemen.
