US Provoking ‘All-out War’ in Middle East — KCNA

SEOUL, October 23. /TASS/. The policy course being pursued by the United States, including its support for Israel and the use of double standards, has resulted in bringing the situation in the Middle East to the brink of an all-out war, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said in an article.

“The situation in the Middle East is getting worse to approach the threshold of a total war. It is the unanimous voice of the international community that the Middle East situation, which poses the danger of an all-out war, is a tragedy entirely caused by the US,” the North Korean news agency opined.

According to it, in Israel, an order was issued to “prepare for all-round invasion” and there have been increasingly more air raids on the Gaza Strip. Against this backdrop, the United States committed itself to sending weapons and supporting Israel as it dispatched two aircraft carriers to the region. Senior US officials, including the Secretary of State, the defense secretary and the president, flew to Israel to voice their support and “encourage the war,” KCNA said.

Earlier this month, the United States vetoed a draft resolution of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) aimed at ensuring a ceasefire and resolving the humanitarian crisis, thus obliterating “even the slight opportunity” of preventing an escalation, the article reads. The European Union, as an observer “without any independent thinking and principle, is joining the US,” the authors of the article said.

“The US has persistently patronized Israel, which illegally occupied Palestinian territory and is getting engrossed in ceaseless armed attacks, inhuman killing of civilians and expansion of the Jewish settlements, for its domestic politics and strategy for world supremacy. This has resulted in the failure to realize the Palestinian people’s desire to build an independent state and the sustained historical inequity they are facing,” KCNA maintained.

According to KCNA, Washington is shifting the blame for the situation in the Middle East onto Palestine as it brands the country as an aggressor, “but the fair international community is categorically rejecting this.” “World public warns that the stability and security on the earth are being threatened due to the arbitrary and double-standard foreign policy of the US,” KCNA concluded as it recommended the international community to closely watch what it said was the foolish attempt by the US and resolutely reject it.
