Tehran – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh, said, ‘The war with Israel has already begun. Israel has carried out attacks that intended to destroy our nuclear programme for peaceful purposes. It murdered nuclear scientists and harmed the Iranian people. This is nothing but war. The whole crisis in the region is Israel’s fault.’
Four days ago, while speaking at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett had held Iran responsible for the volatility in the Middle East. He had also warned Iran for violating the safeguard agreements of the nuclear deal and said that Israel, will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. Bennett had urged for cooperation from the global community with Israel. Middle Eastern media claimed that the Israeli Prime Minister had issued a warning of action on Iran at the UN General Assembly.
Khatibzadeh retaliated to the threats posed by the Israeli Prime Minister. He said, ‘The war between Iran and Israel has already started.’ Accordingly, he mentioned Israeli activities against Iran in the last two years. He had signalled the suspicious blast at the Natanz nuclear site and the assassination of nuclear scientist Fakhrizadeh was a part of the Israeli war against Iran.
Moreover, Israel ensured to thwart the nuclear talks in Vienna and incited conflict between Iran and the world powers. Khatibzadeh accused Israel of triggering a war between Iran and the western countries with its actions. Concurrently, he claimed that Iran’s nuclear program is being questioned by Israel, which possesses hundreds of warheads.
Khatibzadeh laid allegations that Iran is accused of spreading terrorism in the Middle East. However, terrorism cannot be good or bad. The whole crisis in the region is Israel’s fault. Meanwhile, a US print media had earlier claimed that a covert war has triggered between Iran and Israel. Iran and Israel target each other’s cargo and fuel-carrier ships sailing through the Persian Gulf to the Mediterranean Sea. This is solely a covert war, warns the newspaper.
