Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov have discussed the latest developments in Gaza, expressing concern over the spillover of the Israeli war to other parts of the region.
In a Friday phone conversation, Amir-Abdollahian urged the international community to make more serious efforts to put an end to Israel's criminal acts and genocide against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
For his part, Lavrov said Russia and Iran have a common stance on the critical situation in Palestine, particularly in Gaza, which has been under Israeli attacks since October 7.
The top Russian diplomat added that his country is concerned that the expansion of war would spiral the situation out of control.
On Friday, the 28th day of Israel’s genocidal air attacks on the Gaza Strip, the death toll was at least 9,227 people, including 3,826 children and more than 2,405 women. At least 23,516 people have been wounded.
The regime launched the war on October 7 after Gaza's resistance groups conducted Operation al-Aqsa Storm, their biggest operation against the occupying entity in years.
Earlier on Friday, Amir-Abdollahian held separate phone talks with Syrian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Faisal Mekdad and Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani.
