In the event of an Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip, “new battle fronts” could appear against the country. RIA Novosti about this reported First Deputy Head of Iran’s Parliamentary Commission on National Security and Foreign Policy Ebrahim Azizi.
He said Israel’s invasion of Gaza was a “red line” and Palestine was waiting for him to “make that blunder.”
“If the Israeli regime takes such a step and does not stop rocket attacks on the Gaza Strip, it will have to wait for the emergence of new fronts of military action against it, and not just one, as it is now,” Azizi said.
He is convinced that the Palestinian resistance front “has virtually no borders,” and a war on several fronts “could lead to the fall of Israeli power and statehood.”
October 15 at the Iranian Permanent Mission to the UN statedthat Tehran will intervene in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict in the event of an Israeli attack on the country’s territory. Before this, the media wrote that Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian threatened Israel with intervention in the conflict if the Jewish state continued the operation in the Gaza Strip and launched a ground offensive. He’s the same warned Tel Aviv about retaliation for the ground operation in Gaza.
