Israel is forcing everyone to take action, considering Israel’s war crimes in Gaza, the Iranian President noted.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said that Israel had crossed ‘red lines’ that could force everyone to take action.

“Zionist regime’s crimes have crossed the red lines, which may force everyone to take action. Washington asks us to not do anything, but they keep giving widespread support to Israel. The US sent messages to the Axis of Resistance but received a clear response on the battlefield,” the president said in a statement on his account at the social media platform X.

‘Axis of Resistance’ is the term used in the Middle East to reference the united resistance against the Israeli occupation and US military interventions. It includes Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other groups.

Earlier, Raisi said in an interview with Al-Jazeera that Iran would not heed the US’ warnings against interfering in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Nearly 500 Palestinians were killed and hundreds more injured in the hospital massacre, considered the worst single act of violence carried out by Israel in Gaza in many years. 

Israel has, thus far, killed over 8,000 Palestinians in Gaza, and wounded more than 20,000. 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.
