Iran’s Foreign Minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, has issued a warning, stating that the potential opening of a “new front” in the Israel-Hamas conflict depends on Israel’s actions in Gaza.

Iran, a supporter of Hamas and various Middle East armed groups, underscores that if Israel continues its actions against Palestinians, it will trigger a response from what they refer to as “the rest of the axis.” In this scenario, Israel would be held responsible for the consequences.

Speaking to the media after his arrival in Beirut on Thursday, Amirabdollahian argues that the displacement of Palestinians and the cutoff of essential services, such as water and electricity to the Gaza Strip, amount to war crimes.

He emphasizes that the situation in Gaza constitutes war crimes and could lead to potential action from their alliance, known as the Axis of Resistance. This alliance includes Iran, Palestinian militant groups, Syria, Hezbollah, and other actors.

Iranian officials deny direct involvement in the recent attack by Hamas on Israel while Iran has a history of supporting Hamas.

The United States has expressed concerns about the potential for a second front opening on Israel’s northern border with Lebanon if Hezbollah, another heavily armed group backed by Iran, becomes involved.

Earlier the same day, in discussions with Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, Foreign Minister Amirabdollahian made it clear that the decision to open a new front against Israel would be contingent on Israel’s actions in Gaza.

He emphasized that “even now, Israel’s crimes continue, and no one in the region asks us for permission to open new fronts.”

Amirabdollahian arrived in Beirut, where he was welcomed by Hezbollah and Hamas, among other pro-Iran groups later. He stated that Iran’s regional allies, collectively known as the “axis of resistance,” could respond if Israel’s actions in Gaza escalate further.

Casualties have been reported on both sides in the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. Hamas militants’ attack on Saturday resulted in the deaths of at least 1,200 Israelis, foreigners, and dual citizens.

In response, Gaza reported that Israel’s retaliatory strikes led to the loss of 1,417 Palestinian lives.

The international community remains vigilant regarding Iran’s role and actions in the conflict. US President Joe Biden has issued a warning, urging Iran to exercise caution.

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has also called for cooperation among Islamic and Arab countries to halt what they describe as “crimes of the Zionist regime against the oppressed Palestinian nation.”
