Unlike its previous warnings, Iran’s position now is that there is no reversal to the outcome of the Israeli war.

The expansion of the Israeli war on Gaza to the whole region has become ‘inevitable,’ according to Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Amir-Abdollahian’s comments were made in a telephone conversation with his Qatari counterpart Sheikh Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani on Thursday.

“Due to the expansion of the intensity of the war against Gaza’s civilian residents, expansion of the scope of the war has become inevitable,” Amir-Abdollahian said.

It is unclear what Amir-Abdollahian meant by the inevitable expansion of the conflict. 

Leaders of Muslim countries will be meeting in an emergency summit in Riyadh on November 12, with the hope of forming a unified position against the ongoing Israeli war on Gaza. 

On his account on the social media platform X, Amir-Abdollahian tweeted on Thursday “Time is fast running out for Tel Aviv’s crimes to continue.” 

“The only benefit of Netanyahu was that he made the foundations of the fake Israeli regime more shaky and showed the criminal, violent, and aggressive face of the Zionist regime in the massacre of women and children in Gaza.” 

He concluded his tweet by writing that “undoubtedly, the future belongs to Palestine.” 

Israel has, thus far, killed over 10,812 – including 4,412 children and 2,918 women – and wounded 26,905. Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

Despite a massive Israeli military buildup around the Gaza borders and sporadic infiltrations on the outskirts of the besieged Strip, Palestinian Resistance continues to repel Israeli attacks.

To justify its military failure, the Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

Gaza has been under a tight Israeli military siege since 2007, following a democratic election in occupied Palestine, the results of which were rejected by Tel Aviv and Washington.
