US Stuck in Quagmire of Gaza: Iranian FM

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The US plans for the Gaza Strip have stalled because either continuing support for the Israeli onslaught or acceding to a political solution in compliance with the demands of resistance will mark a defeat for Washington, the foreign minister of Iran said.

Addressing a cultural event at the University of Tehran on Monday, Hossein Amirabdollahian said the Zionist regime and its allies have two options in Gaza, both of which entail defeats for them.

“The first option is the continuation of (Israeli) war (on Gaza), but the continuation of war means the continuation of massacre and the continuation of a humiliating defeat for Israel and the US,” he said.

“The other option is a political solution, for which the resistance is now setting conditions and it does not approve of a ceasefire. The US is today stuck in the quagmire of Gaza,” Amirabdollahian added.

He noted that the Zionist regime’s leaders and the US politicians who once had the idea of eliminating Hamas are presently sending messages to the resistance movement for negotiations in third countries.

“They (Israel and the US) are negotiating on how to run Gaza after the war and how to swap the Palestinian prisoners with the Israeli captives. It shows that the resistance has moved in the correct direction and has been able to win a major victory,” the Iranian minister added.

Poll: US Public Support for Israel Wanes as 68 Percent Call for Ceasefire

  TEHRAN (FNA)- Israel’s war on Gaza is upsetting many Americans who think it must follow growing demands for an immediate ceasefire, according to a new poll. The Reuters/Ipsos survey found only 32 percent of respondents said “the US should support Israel”. That is down from 41 percent from a poll conducted on October 12-13 – just days after the war broke out. About 68 percent of respondents said they agreed with the statement, “Israel should call a ceasefire and try to negotiate”. Some 39 percent supported the idea “the US should be a neutral mediator”, compared with 27 percent a month earlier. Only 4 percent of respondents said the United States should support Palestinians, while 15 percent said the US shouldn’t be involved at all in the war. While the US has been a significant Israeli ally, just 31 percent of respondents said they supported sending Israel weapons. The plunge in support fol

Iraq’s Resistance Forces Target Israeli Settlement of 'Eilat' in Support of Gaza

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Islamic Resistance in Iraq claimed responsibility for an attack on the Israeli settlement of "Eilat" for the second time in two weeks, vowing to carry out more attacks against the Israeli occupation amid the regime's bombardment campaign against Gaza.  The Iraqi resistance movement, an umbrella group of anti-terror fighters, announced in a statement published on its Telegram channel on Sunday that they targeted the illegal Israeli settlement south of occupied Palestine. The settlement is built on the ruins of the Palestinian town of Umm al-Rashrash. "In support of our Ummah (people) in Gaza, and in response to the massacres committed by the usurping entity against Palestinian civilians, including children, women, and elders, the fighters of the Islamic Resistance in Iraq targeted a site in occupied Umm Al-Rashrash (Eilat) using appropriate weapons," the statement said.
