“I believe that neither Iran nor Lebanon wants to be involved in this crisis,” the minister said, Sputnik reports.
These countries will not get involved in the conflict unless there are provocations, despite the presence of Hezbollah in Lebanon and pro-Palestinian movements in Iran, Lavrov added. Lavrov also said that the US possibly wants the crisis in Gaza to go beyond the region.
The creation of a Palestinian state is inevitable in the historical aspect, head Sergey Lavrov said.
“Basically, in practical terms, Washington does not want to tie Israel’s hands,” Lavrov said, noting that Russia’s resolution calling for a ceasefire in the Gaza conflict was twice rejected by the UN Security Council.
The minister added that the US perceives all Russian initiatives as hostile.
The Israeli regime waged a bloody war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Resistance movement Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity.
The Palestinian death toll from Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip has climbed to 11,180, including 4,609 children and 3,100 women. More than 28,000 others injured in the regime’s military onslaught so far.
At least 22 hospitals and 49 health centers have ceased operations in Gaza due to Israeli attacks and a shortage of fuel needed to operate power generators.
