The spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry says the resistance front’s hands are not tied up and there are other options if Israel continues its atrocities against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.
“We are witnessing an unequal war against Palestinian people in Gaza, and the onslaught is followed by numerous crimes,” Nasser Kan’ani said during an interview with Lebanon’s Aabic-language al-Mayadeen television news network.
“We are witnessing genocide against Palestinians. All those who follow Israeli affairs acknowledge that the Zionist regime is not what it used to be prior to October 7. The resistance’s hands are not tied up. It will not stand idly by and will deliver a deterrent response.”
He added, “The Axis of Resistance is not constrained to one specific front, and the Zionists should consider any scenario as fairly likely.”
On Monday, Abu Ubaida, a spokesman for the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of the Gaza-based Hamas resistance movement, emphasized that his comrades are “not intimidated” by the Israeli regime’s threat of launching a ground aggression against the Gaza Strip.
“Threatening us with ground invasion does not intimidate us, and we are ready to deal with any brutal force,” he said, warning, “Gaza will only be a graveyard for its invaders and its sands will swallow you up.”
On October 7, Hamas launched Operation al-Aqsa Storm deep into the territories occupied by the Israeli regime. The operation involved large-scale air, land, and sea strikes.
The group said the operation was a reaction to the recurring desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied al-Quds as well as intensified Israeli atrocities against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
Israel responded with intensive air strikes on civilian targets in the Gaza Strip, killing at least 2,866 Palestinians in Gaza and wounding some 12,000 others, according to the territory’s health ministry.
