Tehran, 6 December 2023(TDI): The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Nasser Kanaani, refuted the British government’s assertion that Iran is responsible for the Red Sea strikes as false.
He stated that such allegations issued against Iran for political reasons demonstrate British officials’ attempts to alter the reality on the ground in the region and reflect their being influenced by the interests of third parties, particularly the child-killing Zionist dictatorship.
In a statement, Nasser Kanaani stated, “These claims are made with specific political goals and show efforts by British authorities to distort the realities in the region and also indicate that they are influenced by the preferences of third parties, including the child-killer Zionist regime.”
In addition, the spokeswoman labeled some British officials’ statements and actions “non-constructive,” claiming they undermine regional and global stability and peace.
The spokesperson suggested UK officials should condemn the Israeli regime’s assaults and focus on stopping war crimes against the Palestinian people and supporting humanitarian aid distribution in accordance with international law, rather than baseless accusations.
Furthermore, he underscored, “As we have already stated, the resistance factions in the region do not receive orders from the Islamic Republic of Iran to fight and respond to the Zionist regime’s war crimes and genocide against children.”
Additionally, he indicated, “These factions make decisions and take actions based on their own principles and priorities, as well as the interests of their own countries and people.”
Since October 7, at least 15,899 Palestinians have been executed in Gaza. However, the Zionist regime has increased attacks across the Gaza Strip, specifically amid hospitals and in the besieged enclave’s south, where ground operations are growing.

In his closing remarks, he also stated that they should work to put an end to the regime’s war crimes against the Palestinian people, including women and children, to make it easier to deliver assistance in accordance with international norms and agreements.
