Iran (IMNA) - Speaking at a United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting focused on the Middle East situation, particularly Gaza, the esteemed diplomat expressed his concerns. The Israeli regime initiated the conflict on October 7, 2023, following Gaza's resistance movements' Operation al-Aqsa Storm. Tragically, the relentless assault has claimed the lives of approximately 25,500 Palestinians, predominantly women and children.

United States Accused of Unilateral Support for Israeli Offensive in Gaza

In a scathing statement, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister, Amir-Abdollahian, accused the United States of providing unwavering military and political backing to Israel's relentless assault on Gaza.

Furthermore, the US has obstructed any chance of halting the Israeli aggression by blocking the ratification of Security Council resolutions calling for a permanent ceasefire.

Amir-Abdollahian condemned the US for its role as the "practical supporter and main accomplice" of the Israeli regime's crimes.
