Iran warns US of ‘new fronts’ in Middle East — RT World News


Washington’s reluctance to change course could lead to regional escalation, Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said.

The United States could face dire consequences in the Middle East if it continues to support Israel, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has warned. His comments come against the backdrop of the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian armed group Hamas, and following US strikes on military sites in the region allegedly used by Tehran’s forces.

Washington “advises others to show restraint, but he completely sided with Israel” the minister said in an interview with Bloomberg TV on Friday.

If the United States continues what it has been doing so far, new fronts will open against it.

Amir-Abdollahian also warned that bloodshed continues in Gaza “This will send the situation out of control in the region. »

“The American side should decide: does it really want to intensify the war? » He asked.

The foreign minister then denied that Iran had ordered militant groups in Iraq and Syria to attack the United States, insisting they were acting on their own. “They receive no orders from us, no instructions” he said.

On Thursday, the Pentagon announced it had launched airstrikes on two facilities in eastern Syria believed to be used by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), an elite branch of Tehran’s military, and affiliated groups. Later, US President Joe Biden said the raid was a response to recurring attacks on US forces in the region.

Commenting on the Hamas-Israel conflict, Amir-Abdollahian warned that West Jerusalem would face consequences if it launched a ground invasion of Gaza.

“The opening of new fronts will be inevitable and this will put Israel in a new situation that will make it regret its actions. » he said, adding that “Everything is possible and all fronts can be opened. »

On Friday, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said it “expansion of ground operations” in the Palestinian enclave, which is already reeling from incessant air and missile attacks. The statement comes as several media outlets report that the United States fears that a large-scale Israeli ground attack on Gaza could drive Hezbollah, an Islamist military group based in Lebanon and with close ties to Iran, into the conflict.
