Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian has denounced Israel as the root cause of insecurity gripping West Asia.

“The main source of insecurity is the occupying Zionist regime,” Amir-Abdollahian said during a Sunday telephone conversation with Qatrai Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani.

The top Iranian diplomat also briefed his Qatari counterpart on recent developments in the region and the Islamic Republic’s legitimate act of self-defense that involved a major attack on the occupied territories.

Overnight on Saturday and early Sunday morning, Iran launched hundreds of missiles and drones at targets in the occupied lands.

The large-scale operation came less than two weeks after Israeli warplanes bombed the consular annex of Iran’s embassy in the Syrian capital, killing seven members of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) who were on an advisory mission to the Arab country.

Sheikh Mohammed underlined the need for security in West Asia, saying the actions of the Israeli regime have caused regional instability.
