'Time's up': Iran threatens Israel after rocket hits Gaza hospital

Hossein Amir-Abdallahian, Iran's foreign minister, posted a tweet on October 18 saying that Israel's time was "running out." This happened after a rocket attack was carried out on a hospital in Gaza on October 17, reports New York Post.

Hossein Amir-Abdallahian shared a chilling message after hundreds of people were killed in a rocket attack on a Gaza City hospital. Israel said the strike was caused by a failed rocket launch by the Palestinian militant group Islamic Jihad.

“After the terrible crime of the Zionist regime - bombing and killing over 1000 innocent women and children in a hospital - it is time for global unity of humanity against this fake regime, more hateful than ISIS and its killing machine,” Amir-Abdollahian tweeted.

"Time is over!"

The Iranian embassy in Syria also tweeted "time is up" in Hebrew and Arabic.

On the subject: In Chicago, a landlord killed a 6-year-old Muslim boy and wounded his mother in a hate crime.

The alarming message comes just days after Amir-Abdollahian warned that a regional network of militias dubbed the "axis of resistance" would open "multiple fronts" against Israel if it continues to kill civilians in the Gaza Strip.

“Time is running out very quickly,” Amir-Abdollahian said during a live television interview with Iranian state television on the evening of October 16. “If war crimes against the Palestinians are not stopped immediately, numerous other fronts will open, and this is inevitable.”

The latest warning came just hours after Hamas accused Israel of killing more than 500 people in an airstrike on Al Ahly Hospital. Israel denies this, insisting it was the work of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad group.

Health ministry spokesman Ashraf Al-Qudra said in the early hours of October 18 that hundreds of people had died and that rescuers were still recovering bodies from the rubble. Displaced people fleeing Israeli bombings flocked to hospitals, seeking refuge in the hope that they would be safer.

In the first hours after the explosion, the head of Gaza's civil defense said 300 people had been killed, while health ministry sources put the figure at 500.

“According to intelligence received from several sources that we have, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad organization was responsible for the attack on the hospital,” IDF spokesman Daniel Hagari said.

Khagary told reporters that rockets fired by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad militant group flew past the hospital during the strike and, he said, hit the facility's parking lot.

During a briefing for journalists, Hagari questioned the number of Palestinians killed in the hospital strike and said there was no direct strike. He said military drone footage showed "what appears to be an impact in the parking lot."

He said the military did have an Israeli Air Force operation in the area around the time of the hospital explosion, "but it was a different type of munition that does not match the data we have from the hospital."

IDF Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus said the military intercepted a conversation in which the militants acknowledged the misfire. He said the military would release a recording of the conversation.

Islamic Jihad has denied that any of its missiles were involved in the hospital explosion, saying it had no activity in or around Gaza City at the time.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the hospital in Gaza was attacked by "barbaric terrorists" and not the Israeli military, reports ReutersThe death toll was the highest of any incident in Gaza during the current violence, sparking protests in the occupied West Bank, Istanbul and Amman.

Palestinian Health Minister Mai Alkaila blamed Israel for the bombing of Al-Ahly Hospital.

However, Iran was also quick to condemn Israel for the attack, with Nasser Kanani, a spokesman for the country's foreign ministry, calling it a "brutal war crime" and an example of "genocide."

He accused Israel of committing a “brutal and horrific crime.”

“The Zionist regime of Israel has once again demonstrated to the world its savagery and inhumanity and has proven that it has not the slightest adherence to the principles and rules of international law during war,” he said.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameni also invited Israeli officials to "face justice for their crimes."

On the eve of the great war

Iran's threats have led some to worry that if Iran escalates the war in the Gaza Strip, it could even drag Russia into the conflict, leading to a potential World War III.

Russian officials have already spoken out against the attack on the hospital, with Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova saying Israel must provide satellite imagery to prove its innocence.

“So far, Russia and China have remained relatively restrained in their public statements, but if Iran intervenes directly, Russia would likely feel forced to support it. Iran provides critical supplies of missiles and UAVs to Russia, as well as training the Russian military in the war against Ukraine,” explained Justin Bronk, a senior fellow at the Royal United Services Institute in London.

Ray Dalio, the billionaire founder of Bridgewater Associates who is also a financial historian, also warned that if the conflict spreads to "major countries," a much more horrific world war could break out.

“It seems to me that the war between Israel and Hamas is another classic failed step towards a more brutal and comprehensive war,” he wrote on LinkedIn.

King Abdullah II of Jordan, a major US ally, also said: "This war, which has entered a dangerous phase, will plunge the region into unspeakable disaster."

In more than 10 days of war, at least 3000 Palestinians and 1400 Israelis were killed.

Israeli officials have vowed to destroy Hamas in an expected ground invasion of Gaza, and IDF soldiers are also seeking to rescue more than 150 people taken hostage by Hamas.
