The Israeli regime is using unconventional arms and weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in its deadly assaults on the Gaza Strip, says an Iranian official.
On Thursday, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian slammed the United States for providing Israel with various types of military equipment.
The Iranian official added that Israel has used new-generation unconventional arms and weapons of mass destruction in the war on Gaza.
Washington has reportedly allowed Israel to use an American-owned munitions stockpile which consists of missiles, armored vehicles and artillery ammunition in the war on Gaza. The arms depot is located at a classified site inside Israel.
Amir-Abdollahian also reaffirmed Iran’s support for the Palestinian resistance in Gaza and said Tehran would continue its political and diplomatic efforts to help stop Tel Aviv’s crimes against Gazans and break the regime’s crippling blockade on the impoverished coastal enclave.
He further expressed hope that the Egyptian government would issue permission for the dispatch of Iran’s medical and humanitarian supplies into Gaza and the transfer of the wounded Palestinians to the Islamic Republic.
The first consignment of Iran’s relief aid for Gazans has been flown into the Egyptian capital of Cairo and is waiting to be cleared for transfer into the Palestinian sliver via the Rafah border crossing.
Amir-Abdollahian further called on the Arab and Muslim states to honor their obligations and respond to the Israeli siege on Gaza by cutting their relations with the Tel Aviv regime.
More than 1,370 Palestinians have so far been killed and some 7,700 others injured since the Israeli military first launched its offensive on Gaza on July 8.
