Israel wouldn’t dare commit genocide in Gaza if not for US support: FM spox


Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman has slammed Israel’s ongoing deadly bombardment of the Gaza Strip, saying the occupying regime would not dare commit so many crimes and genocide against Palestinians if it weren’t for the United States’ support.

Nasser Kan’ani made the remarks in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, on Saturday, as the US continues to support Israel’s genocidal campaign against the Palestinians in Gaza as a means of “self-defense.”

Kan’ani went on to say that the Israeli regime has stepped up its strikes in Gaza and it is brutally killing innocent civilians despite widespread protests across the world and a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly against the war crimes of the occupying regime in the besieged enclave.

He also noted that the Israeli strikes are not merely limited to relentless bombardments aimed at the genocide of Palestinians, but rather, they amount to non-stop attacks on human principles, global peace and security, human rights, and international laws.

On October 7, Hamas launched its biggest operation against Israel in years in a surprise offensive, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, in response to the occupying regime’s intensified crimes against the Palestinian people.

Since then, Israel has pressed ahead with a relentless bombardment of Gaza. The death toll in Gaza since the start of Israeli aggression has reached over 7,400 with more than 20,500 wounded.

Tel Aviv has also blocked water, food, and electricity to Gaza, plunging the besieged territory into a humanitarian crisis.

On Friday, the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly passed a resolution, calling for the implementation of an immediate “humanitarian truce” in Gaza.

The vote at the General Assembly came after the United Nations Security Council failed four times to take action due to the US’s recurrently casting its veto against relevant resolutions.
