Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says Israel’s genocide, use of banned weapons and continuation of the blockade on the Gaza Strip are proof the regime outdoes the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group.
“Genocide and infanticide, the use of prohibited weapons, preventing the delivery of water, food and medicine to Gaza, and brutality towards the captives and innocent citizens show the apartheid and occupying Israeli regime is way ahead of Daesh in committing a variety of crimes,” Amir-Abdollahian said in a post on his X account on Friday.
He warned against the structural collapse of international organizations and the threat to global peace and security in case Israel keeps ignoring warnings by the chief of the United Nations.
“[Israel's] lack of urgent attention to the warnings issued by the UN secretary general (António Guterres) and the continuation of the White House support for the Israeli regime's war crimes will lead to the structural collapse of international organizations, global peace and security, and ultimately the decline of human dignity,” the top Iranian diplomat stated.
Committing genocide and killing children, the use of prohibited weapons, blocking the access and flow of water, food and medicine to Gaza and savagery in treating prisoners and innocent abducted citizens all illustrate that this apartheid and occupier regime is well outperforming…— H.Amirabdollahian امیرعبداللهیان (@Amirabdolahian) December 8, 2023
Amir-Abdollahian expressed confidence that the failure of the Israeli and US war policy and genocide against Palestine is “very close.”
Israel launched the war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas waged the surprise Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in response to the regime's decades-long campaign of bloodletting and devastation against Palestinians.
More than 17,400 people, most of them women and children, have been killed and over 46,480 others injured in Israel's relentless air and ground attacks on Gaza.
