Iran has warned the United States could face dire consequences if it continues to support Israel.

In an interview with Bloomberg TV on Friday, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said that Washington “is advising others to show self-restraint, but it has sided with Israel totally.”

Amir-Abdollahian said that Israel’s massacres in Gaza “will make the situation get out of control in the region,” asking:

 “The American side should decide – does it really want to escalate, intensify the war?”

Amir-Abdollahian also said that, if Israel launched a ground invasion into the besieged Gaza Strip, it would face consequences.

“Opening of new fronts will be unavoidable and that will put Israel in a new situation that will make it regret its actions,” he said, adding that “anything is possible, and any front can be opened up.”

Israel has, thus far, killed 7,703 Palestinians in Gaza, including 3,195 children, and wounded over 19,743 more.

Palestinian Ministry of Health reports and international organizations say that the majority of those killed and wounded are women and children.

On Friday night, Israel intensified airstrikes and expanded its ground operations in Gaza, while knocking out all communications for Palestinians in the besieged Strip.

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.
