Hezbollah will make Israel suffer ‘huge earthquake’ if Gaza killings don’t stop: Iran

Hossein Amir-Abdollahian Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran.

Iran’s foreign minister on Saturday called on Israel to stop its attacks on Gaza, warning that the war might expand to other parts of the Middle East if Hezbollah joins the battle, and that would make Israel suffer “a huge earthquake.”

Hossein Amirabdollahian told reporters in Beirut that Lebanon’s Hezbollah terror group has taken all war scenarios into consideration and Israel should stop its attacks on Gaza as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the Axios news site reported that Tehran has sent Jerusalem a message through the UN that it will intervene if the campaign in Gaza continues, and particularly if it launches a ground offensive. The report cited two diplomatic sources with knowledge of the matter.

The report said Amirabdollahian made the comments when he met Saturday with UN Middle East envoy Tor Wennesland in Beirut, a meeting that led to intense criticism from Israel.

Later on Saturday, Amirabdollahian met in Qatar with Hamas politburo chief Ismail Haniyeh.

A short while later, Iran’s mission to the UN warned in a tweet that if Israel’s “war crimes and genocide” are not stopped immediately, this could have “far-reaching consequences” and the situation could “spiral out of control.”

Meanwhile, authorities in Gaza said Israeli air strikes killed more than 2,300 people, a quarter of them children, with nearly 10,000 wounded so far. Hospitals are running short of supplies and struggling to cope with growing numbers of wounded.
