Iran’s defense chief has said that the United States will be “hit hard” if a ceasefire doesn’t happen in Gaza. Iran is blaming the U.S. for the war in the Middle East and will soon face repercussions if it doesn’t talk Israel into ending the conflict.
“Our advice to the Americans is to immediately stop the war in Gaza and implement a ceasefire, otherwise they will be hit hard,” Mohammad-Reza Ashtiani said, as cited by IRNA and reported by RT.
Earlier on Sunday, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani said Israel was committing “war crimes and genocide” with the “full support” of the US government. “Israel’s criminal acts, fully supported by the United States, portray the arrogant spirit of Washington which incited hatred among nations across the world,” Kanaani said, according to Press TV.
Washington has refused to call for a full ceasefire between Israel and Hamas, opting for a “humanitarian pause” instead. The Pentagon has shipped additional weapons to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and dispatched a naval armada to the western Mediterranean Sea to show support for Israel. –RT
Israel and the U.S., are accusing Iran of orchestrating the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians and supplying the group with weapons. The Pentagon also said that Iran has backed militias that have conducted drone and rocket attacks on U.S. bases in the Middle East. Tehran has endorsed Hamas’ deadly October 7th incursion into Israel but claimed that it was an “entirely Palestinian” raid.
One thing is for certain, if the U.S. doesn’t ease out of this war or Iran decides to aid Palestine, it will get out of control quickly.
