FM Amirabdollahian to US: Stop genocide, hypocrisy against Gaza

Iran’s foreign minister has reiterated that the Americans sent a message to Iran claiming that they seek a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip, rejecting Washington’s denial of the message as completely false.

“The US has been seeking a humanitarian ceasefire since last week,” Hossein Amirabdollahian confirmed in a post on his X account on Monday night.

It came hours after he revealed Washington was seeking a ceasefire in Gaza despite their continued support for Israel’s genocide against Palestinians.

“We hope that the US will soon change its policy and stop supporting the occupying party,” he said.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the US National Security Council rejected Amirabdollahian’s comments as “categorically false”, claiming, “We have made it clear to Iran that they should not seek to escalate the conflict.”

What they say is “completely false,” said Amirabdollahian in his X post.

“Of course, at the same time, they are running the war game against Gaza and the West Bank of Palestine. Stop the hypocrisy and genocide against Gaza,” he added.

The Iranian foreign minister’s statement came after Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani visited Tehran, a day after he met with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Baghdad.

More than 10,000 people have been killed in the Gaza Strip since Israel began to relentlessly attack the besieged enclave on October 7. Children and women account for nearly 70 percent of the death toll from Israeli airstrikes, which have targeted residential areas, health facilities, and schools.

Since the beginning of the Zionist regime’s bloody war on Gaza, US-run military bases in Iraq and Syria have been repeatedly targeted by resistance fighters who say Washington is Israel’s partner in crime.
