FM Spokesman: Arrogant Powers' Equations Disturbed by Iran

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast on Wednesday praised Iran's potentials and success in thwarting enemies' plots, and reiterated that the country has managed to change the equations created by the western powers.

"Iran has disturbed the equations of the world arrogance through its special success in all fields," Mehman-Parast said.

He further added that Iran could become an independent state through making independent decisions in its foreign policy, struggling for unity and cutting hands of the US.

Iran has always supported resistance groups in the regional countries, including Palestine, Lebanon and Syria, and could bring the West's hegemonic policies into deadlock and foil their plots for dominating and plundering these countries.

Iran's recent strong backing for the Palestinian resistance groups in the Gaza Strip was another success for the country in disturbing the equations of the world powers, specially the US.

Israel triggered an 8-day fighting by assassinating the military chief of the ruling Hamas group on November 14 followed by dozens of airstrikes on Gaza.

In response, Palestinian groups fired over 1,500 missiles and rockets at Israel.

Palestinian resistance groups targeted Tel Aviv and areas near Jerusalem for the first time in the history of confrontations between the two sides, launching a rocket attack in a major escalation of hostilities as Israel pressed forward with relentless airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.

Israel called up thousands of reservists and massed troops along the border with Gaza, signaling a ground invasion of the densely populated seaside strip could be imminent.

But the rocket attacks on areas deep in the occupied territories (Israel) frightened the Israeli regime, and made it drop its aggression plans and ask for third party mediation.

Eventually, a Cairo-mediated ceasefire agreement, which took effect on Wednesday November 21, ended the Israeli attacks, which killed more than 165 Palestinians and injured about 1,269 others.
