Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian threatened further attacks against the United States and its interests at the U.N. General Assembly meeting in New York on Thursday.
Iran is already launching rocket and drone attacks against bases housing American personnel in Iraq and Syria, using Shiite militia groups controlled by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). U.S. forces have been able to intercept most of these attacks, but dozens of minor injuries have been reported.

The Iranian foreign minister was referring to Israel’s carefully targeted bombing campaign against Hamas terrorists hiding behind human shields in Gaza, an operation that does not meet any legal or common-sense definition of “genocide.”
Hamas has made several debunked claims about civilian casualties, all of which the Iranian government insists on treating as credible. Hamas operatives have also sought to maximize civilian casualties by preventing Palestinian non-combatants from evacuating after advance warnings from the Israeli military.
Amirabdollahian nevertheless insisted on accusing Israel of “war crimes and genocide” at the United Nations, and he referred to Israel as an “occupying regime” even though it withdrew from Gaza in 2005, leaving it entirely at the mercy of the murderous government Iran supports.
The Iranian foreign minister turned reality on its head by claiming Hamas is a lawful “liberation” movement, even after it raped, murdered, tortured, and kidnapped more than 1,400 Israeli civilians in a hideous surprise attack on October 7. He cited Hamas propaganda to claim the United States and Europe have supported “the killing of about 6,000 civilians in less than three weeks by the Israeli regime in Gaza and West Bank of Palestine.”
“We recommend the US and the West to work for peace and security, not war against people, children and women. Actually, instead of sending rockets, tanks, and bombs to be used against Gaza, they should stop supporting genocide,” he huffed, saying nothing about Hamas’s callous murder of Israeli women and children.
