BAGHDAD, November 6 — Prime Minister Mohammed Shiaa’ Al-Sudani warned during his visit to Tehran on Monday that the Gaza war threatens to escalate into a wider conflict, drawing in countries in the region.

Al-Sudani spoke during a press conference in the Iranian capital and said:

Anyone who wishes to contain the conflict and prevent its spread must exert pressure on the authorities of the occupying power to cease aggression and systematic killing.
