President Raisi: Assassination of al-Arouri is ‘a crime’

Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi has denounced Israel’s assassination of Saleh al-Arouri and described what happened as “a crime”.

Raisi said al-Arouri was a prominent fighter who defended the rights of his people.

Iran Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the assassination of the Hamas deputy chief Saleh al-Arouri proves Israel’s war on Gaza is a total failure.

“The evil acts by Israel in other countries pose a real threat to peace and security and a serious alarm for security of the countries in the region,” Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said in a statement on X.

The assassination of al-Arouri proves Israel “didn’t achieve any of its goals after weeks of war crimes, genocide, and destruction in Gaza”.

Nasser Kanaani, a Foreign Ministry spokesperson, said al-Arouri’s killing will “undoubtedly ignite another surge in the veins of resistance and the motivation to fight against the Zionist occupiers, not only in Palestine but also in the region and among all freedom-seekers worldwide”.
