Iran highlights aggressive nature of Zionist regime citing Israeli air raids on Sudan
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Oct 25, IRNA -- Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Thursday warned the Muslim states about aggressive nature of Zionist regime, citing Israeli air raids on Sudan.
He told IRNA that if the Muslim world and regional countries view the Palestinian cause as the secondary priority in their foreign policy, the aggressive action of Zionist regime in bombing Sudan could be repeated against any other Islamic nations in the region.
Criticizing certain members of the League of Arab States for provoking civil war in Syria and suspending Damascus membership in the regional organization, he said that the Arab League is expected to react seriously to air attack on Sudan as one of its member states.
"The Zionist regime aims to stir division among Muslim countries by attacking Khartoum and the aggression is the result of its failure to topple the Syrian legitimate government and failure of Israeli air defense system to intercept the Lebanese Hezbollah reconnaissance drone."
Amir-Abdollahian asserted that the Zionist regime is fearful of ongoing popular Islamic Awakening in the region and that's why it did not dare admit to the air attack on Sudan.
Meanwhile, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Ramin Mehmanparast condemned the Zionist regime's air raid on the Sudanese territory.
Aggressive action of the Zionist regime warplanes in bombing the Sudanese capital Khartoum on Wednesday is a clear violation of international rules and regulations as well as the country's sovereignty and territorial integrity, Mehmanparast noted.
Such an unjustifiable move by the Zionist regime is originated from its brutal nature, he said warning that it would escalate tensions in the region.
He reiterated that the Islamic Republic of Iran, while reminding regional organizations and the bodies supervising the maintenance of international peace and security of their responsibility in this regard, calls on them to adopt an appropriate stand in order to fulfill their great responsibility against the blatant aggression and prevent its repetition in the future.
The spokesman further called on the regional countries to remain vigilant and take firm stands against the Zionist regime’s aggression against the Muslim country and a member of the Arab League.
Khartoum has accused Tel Aviv of attacking the capital killing two people, 18 months after alleging a similar raid by this regime.
Culture and Information Minister Ahmed Bilal Osman said four radar-evading aircraft carried out the attack at around midnight Tuesday.
Evidence apparently pointing to Israeli involvement was found among remnants of the explosives, he told a news conference on Wednesday.
Sudan called on the United Nations Security Council to condemn the Israeli regime for violating the country’s sovereignty.
