Iranian Intelligence Minister Esmaeel Khatib warned that the Zionists are trying to create rupture between Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
“The Zionist regime is trying to conceal its crime by creating ethnic and religious conflict between Shiites and Sunnis and other ethnicities. A new security problem is the thing they seek to create by resorting to the media and technological atmosphere,” he warned.
He went on to note that “with the support of the global arrogance and some Arab countries, the Zionist regime pretends to be the regional gendarmerie.”
Prior to this, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said that the racism, bloodshed and crackdown done by the Zionist regime is the root of the crisis in the occupied territories.
