Iran’s foreign minister met with officials from Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah in Lebanon four months into the Gaza War. On Friday, Hossein Amirabdollahian reached Beiyrout. Iran would continue to back Hezbollah, he declared, arguing that the security of Lebanon is the security of the entire region.
“We are witnessing that Tel Aviv has not achieved any of its stated aims after months of violence and genocide by the Israeli dictatorship in Gaza and the West Bank,” the speaker remarked.
At first, Israel declared its objectives to be the defeat of Hamas and the release of all Israeli hostages. Palestinian detainees held in Israeli jails at the beginning of the war were released in return for the release of hostages. Since the Palestinian organization Hamas declared the deaths of two hostages, no release has taken place.
The Israeli PM stated on Wednesday, February 7, that his nation’s victory was just a “matter of months” away.
On October 8, Hezbollah opened the front between Lebanon and Israel.
The Houthi rebels from Yemen, who are allies of Teheran, are waging war on ships they claim are connected to Israel in the Red Sea.
Iran has been requesting that the United States apply pressure on Israel to halt its Gaza Strip offensive.
Minister Amirabdollahian stated, “We told the United States of America not to back the Zionists in their crimes against Gaza and the West Bank and their genocide.”
27,947 Palestinians have been murdered by Israel’s military offensive, the majority of whom were women and children.
In advance of the anticipated Israeli invasion of the heavily populated southern Gaza city, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Friday that he has given the military instructions to devise a strategy for the evacuation of civilians from Rafah.
The primary U.N. organization delivering relief in the Gaza Strip announced that day that Israel had placed budgetary limitations on it. The agency’s director stated that the action stopped a shipment of food intended for 1.1 million Palestinians from arriving at the enclave devastated by conflict.
