to report «iusnews»; Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian stressed Tel Aviv and Washington’s inability to wipe out the Palestinian resistance group in the Gaza Strip amid the Zionist regime's all-out war on the besieged territory.
Speaking to reporters in Moscow on Tuesday, the top diplomat advised the United States and the Israeli regime against trying to destroy the Palestinian resistance from the blockaded enclave.
"The US and the Zionist regime are incapable of either eliminating Hamas and the resistance or making decisions instead of the people of Palestine and Gaza," Amir Abdollahian said.
Hamas "is at the height of popularity today", the minister continued, adding, "The resistance has a high capability to withstand this situation for months and continue its daytime and nighttime [retaliatory] attacks against the Zionists' atrocities."
The United States thinks it can make decisions instead of the Palestinian people for the manner of post-war Gaza's management, he stressed.
The senior official advised Washington, though, to stop carrying on with its "strategic mistake", stating, "Leave Palestine to Palestinians, and [thus] avoid another great regional defeat for America, especially on the verge of [the US's] presidential elections."
At least 16,200 people have killed in the besieged territory with over 40,000 people wounded since the start of the war. According to Gaza’s Health Ministry, 70 percent of victims of Israeli assault on the blockaded territory are women and children. Thousands more are missing and feared buried under the rubble.
American and Israeli officials have suggested throughout the war that the coastal territory might not be ruled by Hamas in the aftermath of the military campaign.
The movement, which has been ruling the territory since 2006 on the back of its victory in democratic elections, has, however, vowed to withstand the campaign, stressing it can defend the besieged strip despite the ferocious onslaught for months.
Iranian officials say the Palestinian resistance movements do not face a shortage in munitions and other military equipment and are ready for a long battle with Israel and they are currently considering various options in response to the Zionist regime act of aggression and relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
Following the Hamas military operation against Israel in early October, American officials promised rock-solid and unwavering support to Tel Aviv. The US has also pledged unwavering support for Israel as its military pummels Gaza with bombardment, announcing it will provide Tel Aviv with everything it needed. Washington has also deployed two aircraft carrier strike groups to the Mediterranean, as well as an amphibious assault ship carrying 2,000 sailors and marines.
Iranian officials say the United States is waging a war on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip through Israel, and cautions that the current status in West Asia resembled a powder keg which could spiral out of control. They stress death of thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip is the outcome of the US massive military equipment’s shipments to the occupied territories, calling for trial of Israeli and American officials for their crimes against the Palestinian people. They note If Washington’s political and military aid to Zionists is cut off, the regime won’t be able to proceed its military campaign against the besieged strip.
Tehran says the history of Israel is full of assassinations, massacre, torture and killing of Palestinian kids, and described Tel Aviv regime's atrocities and massacre of Palestinian women and children as indicative of the destitute of Zionists. Iranian officials say Tel Aviv has been struggling for more than 70 years to exit its identity crisis which has been mixed with genocide, plunder, forced displacement and scores of other inhumane moves.
