TEHRAN, Nov. 18 (Xinhua) — Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned Sunday that Israel will face “serious developments” as a result of Jihadist groups’ resistance if it does not stop its aggression on Gaza, semi-official Mehr news agency reported.

Talking on the sidelines of a meeting on Syria here Sunday, Amir-Abdollahian said what is happening in Gaza is the outcome of the past 20-month developments in the region, which are aimed at weakening the axis of resistance against Israel.

The West and Israel intend to eliminate Syria from the resistance axis, he said, adding that they suppose that the time is ripe as Hamas and the Jihadist groups in Syria are not in the condition to defend their territories.

However, Hamas showed that it has made remarkable advancements in terms of defensive and aggressive means and in case the Zionist regime does not stop its aggression on Gaza, there will be ” serious developments” as a result of Jihadist groups’ resistance in the coming hours.

Israel has claimed that the Hamas militants have thrown Iran- made mid-range Fajr missiles on the cities of the Jewish state.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday morning said Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is prepared to scale up ” Operation Pillar of Defense” if necessary.

The Palestinians reported that 52 people have been killed, including 17 civilians, 400 people others wounded by the IDF’s operation.
