A statement from Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Hamas’ attacks on Israel should be seen as “an act of self-defense by the Palestinians.” – This operation is a spontaneous resistance movement of the oppressed people of Palestine in defense of their inalienable rights and a natural reaction to the war-inciting and provocative policy of the Zionists – said Nasser Kanaani, spokesman for the mentioned ministry.
Netanyahu vows “powerful revenge for the black day.” “An unimaginable price”
As Reuters reported, a narrative being circulated in Iranian media is that Hamas’ actions “showed that, contrary to Israel’s claims of intelligence and security domination over the resistance movement, Israel was unable to predict their operations and its Iron Dome was nothing more than a dome made of straw over a sandcastle. Demonstrations took place in Tehran, with participants chanting “death to Israel” and setting off fireworks.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu emphasized in a published statement that “Israel will win this war despite the unimaginable cost.” “This is a difficult day for all of us,” the politician emphasized. “We will reduce all the places where Hamas fighters are located, where they are hiding and preparing, to rubble,” said Benjamin Netanyahu.
