“This rabid dog [Khamenei was referring to State of Israel], this rapacious wolf, has attacked innocent people and humanity must show a reaction. This is genocide, a catastrophe of historical scale,” Khamenei said. (IRNA/Reuters, 29 July)
Khamenei also criticized the United States and Europe for what he said were their efforts to limit the military capacity of Palestinian fighters in Gaza.
“Everyone, whoever has the means, especially in the Islamic world, they should do what they can to arm the Palestinian nation ... the Zionist regime deeply regrets starting this (war) but has no way out,” Khamenei added.
