Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian says an Israeli minister’s threat to use atomic bombs against the Gaza Strip shows that the regime has suffered a “real defeat” at the hands of the resistance front.
In an X post (formerly known as Twitter) on Monday, Amirabdollahian called for the nuclear disarmament of the “brutal, apartheid and barbaric” regime.
The comments came after Israel’s so-called heritage minister Amichai Eliyahu said that dropping a nuclear weapon on Gaza was “one of the possibilities” in the ongoing war on the besieged enclave.
“The remarks by the Israeli regime’s minister about using an atomic bomb indicate the regime’s real defeat in the face of the resistance,” the top Iranian diplomat said.
“The United Nations Security Council and the International Atomic Energy Agency must take immediate and uninterrupted action to disarm this barbaric and apartheid regime. Tomorrow is late. The White House bears full responsibility for this genocide.”
Israel waged a bloody war on the besieged Gaza Strip on October 7 after Hamas’s Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity.
Since the start of the aggression, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 9,922 Palestinians, mostly women and children.
It has also imposed a “complete siege” on the coastal sliver, cutting off fuel, electricity, food and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
