Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian criticizes Israel for escalating conflict

Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, said on Thursday night (9.Nov.2023) that, with the escalation of the conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip, the expansion of the war in the Middle East “became inevitable”.

Due to the expanding intensity of the war against the civilian residents of Gaza, the expansion of the scope of the war became inevitable,” Amir-Abdollahian told Qatari Foreign Minister Mohammed Bin Abdulrahman Al Thani during a phone call. The report of the conversation was published this Friday (10.nov) by Iranian state media Press TV.

This Friday (10.nov), the Ministry of Health of the Gaza Strip said that Israeli airstrikes hit or fell close to 3 hospitals, worsening the dramatic situation of care for the injured after more than 1 month of war between Israel and the Hamas in the region.

Iran supports Hamas but has said it did not act in the October 7 attack on Israel that started the war. The country has the largest military force in the Middle East, with 610,000 active soldiers. The number is more than 3 times Israel’s current contingent, which has 196,000 soldiers. If it effectively enters the war between Israel and Hamas and calls up all of its 350,000 military personnel in reserve, Iran could reach 960,000 men.
