“In case Israel continues attacking the defenseless people of Gaza, there will be no guarantee that the situation would come under control and the conflict would not spill over,” Amir-Abdollahian said in a meeting with Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani on Sunday.

Those who do not favor the expansion of the current war, the Iranian minister said, must stop Israel’s savagery.

Amir-Abdollahian also censured Washington for its contradictory approach, saying the United States invites others to exercise self-restraint but at the same time evades commitment and ramps up its all-out support for Israel.

The Iranian minister urged Muslim countries to work for an end to the “war crimes committed by the apartheid Zionist regime.”

He reiterated the importance of an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) under the current circumstances.

For his part, the Qatari emir expressed concern about the humanitarian situation in Gaza and said Qatar’s stance on the Palestinian issue would never change as it prioritizes an end to the crimes of Israel in the besieged enclave.

On October 7, the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched multi-pronged strikes on Israel and penetrated deep into the territories occupied by the regime for decades. Operation Al-Aqsa Storm took Israel by surprise. It was a response to the regime’s recurrent desecration of al-Aqsa Mosque and decade-long atrocities against the Palestinians.

Israel responded by indiscriminate bombardment of civilian buildings and infrastructure and imposing a total siege on the Strip. Gaza, home to more than 2.3 million Palestinians, has been running vitally low on fuel, electricity, water and food.

So far, Israel has killed more than 2,300 Palestinians, including women and children, in Gaza.
