UNITED NATIONS — Iran warned on Saturday that if Israel’s “war crimes and genocide” are not halted immediately, “the situation could spiral out of control & ricochet far-reaching consequences,” Tehran’s mission to the United Nations in New York posted on X (formerly Twitter).

“If the Israeli apartheid’s war crimes & genocide are not halted immediately, the situation could spiral out of control & ricochet far-reaching consequences – the responsibility of which lies with the UN, the Security Council & the states steering the Council toward a dead end,” the post reads.


Also on Saturday, United States President Joe Biden spoke with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and urged the leaders to allow humanitarian aid to Gaza.

A looming Israeli ground assault was seen to worsen the plight of civilians in Gaza who are without power, fresh water, or access to aid.
