Iran Rejects G7’s Call to Cease Support for Hamas Amid Escalating Israeli-Hamas Conflict

In a recent development, Iran has dismissed a G7 statement urging Tehran to halt its support for Hamas militants and cease actions that contribute to the destabilization of the Middle East. The rejection follows a meeting of foreign ministers from the G7 group in Tokyo, where they expressed support for “humanitarian pauses and corridors” in the ongoing Israeli-Hamas conflict.

The conflict escalated when Hamas gunmen breached the heavily militarized border on October 7, resulting in Israeli air strikes pounding the Gaza Strip. The violence has claimed over 1,400 lives, with the G7 expressing concern over the situation.

The G7 statement specifically called on Iran to “refrain from providing support for Hamas and taking further actions that destabilize the Middle East, including support for Lebanese Hezbollah and other non-state actors.”

In response, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanani, strongly condemned the G7 statement, emphasizing Iran’s continuous efforts to halt military attacks by Israel in Gaza. He expressed disappointment in the G7’s failure to condemn what Iran views as human rights violations and breaches of international law by the Zionist regime.

As a key supporter of Hamas both financially and militarily, Iran has hailed the militant group’s actions against Israel as a “success.” However, Iran denies direct involvement in the conflict. President Ebrahim Raisi asserts that Iran sees it as its duty to support resistance groups while maintaining their independent actions.

It’s worth noting that Iran, since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, does not recognize Israel and has consistently made support for the Palestinian cause a central focus of its foreign policy.
