Iran Rejects G7 Calls To Stop Supporting Hamas

TEHRAN, IRAN — Iran on Thursday rejected a G7 statement that called on Tehran to stop supporting Hamas militants and taking actions that “destabilize” the Middle East.

Tehran’s comment came a day after foreign ministers from the G7 group of advanced economies, meeting in Tokyo, expressed support for “humanitarian pauses and corridors” in the Israeli-Hamas war.

Israeli airstrikes have pounded the Palestinian territory of Gaza since Hamas gunmen stormed across the heavily militarized border on October 7 to kill more than 1,400 people, most of them civilians, and seize around 240 hostages, according to Israeli officials.

The subsequent Israeli bombing campaign in Gaza has killed more than 10,500 people, two-thirds of them women and children, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
