Gaza war shows Israel’s frustration: Iran’s defense minister

Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan

Iran’s defense minister says Israel’s fresh aggression against the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip shows the Tel Aviv regime’s frustration in face of the Palestinian resistance.

Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said on Tuesday that the Israeli regime’s brutal aggression against Gaza indicates the frustration of the regime in the face of anti-Israel resistance front.

The Iranian defense minister condemned Israel’s relentless attacks on Gaza, saying the offensive manifests Tel Aviv’s existential crisis.

Dehqan lashed out at the international claimants of human rights advocacy for remaining tight-lipped in the face of Israeli crimes.

He made it clear that such silence is tantamount to support for the terrorist acts by Takfiri-Zionist groups, adding that these “unjust supports” would embolden the Tel Aviv regime and encourage terrorism.

The Iranian defense minister also stated that the isolation, disarmament and condemnation of Israel is the least that the international community can do against the Tel Aviv regime’s crimes in Gaza.

Over the past 15 days, Israeli warplanes have been hitting numerous targets in the Gaza Strip, demolishing homes and burying families in the rubble. Israeli tanks also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian land on July 17.

Nearly 600 Palestinians have been killed and thousands of others injured since the Israeli military began a fresh wave of aerial assaults on Gaza on July 8. Around 30 Israelis have also been killed in the war.
