Kamal Kharrazi, Iranian foreign minister and top advisor to Iran’s supreme leader, issued a stark warning that a conflict in Lebanon could result in a regional war involving all Arab nations.

“All Lebanese people, Arab countries and members of the Axis of Resistance will support Lebanon against Israel,” he said in an interview with the Financial Times. “There would be a chance of expansion of the war to the whole region, in which all countries including Iran would become engaged.”
