MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Thursday that, in light of Israel's actions, the possibility of opening new fronts remains feasible.
"In light of the continued aggression, war crimes and blockade of the Gaza Strip, the opening of new fronts remains feasible," the minister told Lebanese broadcaster Al Mayadeen.
The minister added that Iran continues to support "resistance forces" politically and through media and called the decision to cut off the Gaza Strip from electricity and water supply a war crime. Amir-Abdollahian also said Israel and "its sponsors" will be held accountable for the results of the aggression against Palestinians.
The Iranian minister arrived in Beirut as part of his trip to the Middle East to coordinate positions on the Palestinian issue amid the escalating situation between Israel and the Palestinians.
