🇮🇷 Iran warns Israel of regional 'earthquake'
There's still a chance to prevent the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from spilling over, Tehran believes.
🇮🇷 Iranian Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, urges Israel to end its airstrikes on Gaza. He warns that the conflict with Hamas could spread across the region if Israel sends ground forces into the enclave and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah gets involved.
"Any step the resistance takes will cause a huge earthquake for Israel."
According to sources, Iran is trying to prevent the war and help Israeli civilians in Gaza. But if the military operation continues, Iran will have to respond.
🕰 "There's still a political opportunity to prevent a widespread crisis in the region," the minister noted, but "maybe in the next few hours, it will be too late."
🤝 This week, Iran's top diplomat visited Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon to discuss the "potential outcome" and the "positions that must be taken."
🇮🇱 In a meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister, Abdallah Bou Habib, Amir-Abdollahian accused Israel of "war crimes" against the people of Gaza. Bou Habib emphasized his solidarity with the Palestinians.
🚨 Hezbollah fighters are on full alert along the Lebanon border. They have been exchanging sporadic fire with Israel since last Saturday's Hamas incursion.
🚀 The Iran-backed group is considered a major threat to Israel, as they possess some 150,000 rockets and missiles.
🤐 The top Iranian diplomat also met with a senior political leader of Hamas, Ismail Haniyeh, in Qatar on Saturday evening, but details of the meeting have yet to be disclosed.
