Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has warned the United States against committing military atrocities and political clumsiness, urging Washington not play with fire in the region.

Addressing an open session of the Majlis on Tuesday, Larijani denounced brutal acts by the Israeli regime in Palestine and by US forces in Afghanistan and added that Washington is currently blamed for being engaged in international treachery.

“In recent days, we were witness to criminal acts in Afghanistan and Palestine that have been perpetrated by the US and Zionist regime (Israel),” IRNA quoted Larijani as saying.

He added that such crimes are conducted in such brutal manner that would deprive Muslims and any other human soul of any sense of security.

Pointing to the massacre of Afghan civilians in a shooting spree by American soldiers, Larijani emphasized that such criminality cannot be easily overlooked.

On Sunday, US soldiers opened fire on Afghan civilians inside their homes, killing at least 16, including women and children, and injuring several others in the district of Panjwaii in southern Kandahar Province.

The top Iranian parliamentarian emphasized that Israel’s savage acts would lead to further awareness of regional nations and lead to deeper isolation of the regime.

He added that Israel’s criminal acts would serve as a warning to regional countries that think they can remove adverse consequences of the regime’s cruel moves through negotiations.

However, brave resistance against the Israeli regime would be the only solution to its savage acts, Larijani pointed out.

Israel has escalated its attacks on the besieged Palestinian territory in recent days, killing at least 25 Palestinians and injuring dozens of others.

Israeli warplanes and ground forces have been frequently attacking Gaza since the end of Tel Aviv’s December 2008-January 2009 war on the enclave, which killed more than 1,400 Palestinians.
