Israel’s friends pessimistic on its future

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian says the Israeli regime is in a situation that even its closest allies are planning for a post-Israel period.

Speaking at meeting with members of the Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, Amirabdollahian described Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, launched by Palestinian resistance groups against Israel on October 7, as a “turning point” in regional developments.

“Today, the Zionist regime (Israel) is in such a state that even the regime’s friends have no hope for it and are thinking about a post-Israel era,” Zohreh Elahian, a member of the committee, quoted the foreign minister as saying.

He also emphasized that the United States, as the main supporter of Israel, is desperate due to mounting public hatred both at home and abroad.

The lawmaker noted that Amirabdollahian also outlined Iran’s diplomatic efforts in support of the Palestinian people, including negotiations with authorities from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, and Jordan.

Israel’s brutal military offensive in Gaza has killed a total of 21,822 Palestinians, most of them women and children, and wounded 56,451 others. The war has triggered a global outrage, with protesters across the world rallying to call for a ceasefire.

There are growing anger and despair worldwide towards politicians and countries who vetoed or abstained from voting for a ceasefire at the United Nations.

Rights organizations, including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders, also condemned countries opposing a ceasefire in Gaza, warning that this would result in a humanitarian disaster.

Activists have launched a global campaign, named Countdown2Ceasefire, asking people to turn the New Year’s countdown in their countries into a countdown for a permanent ceasefire in Gaza.
