Senior Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian warned that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's pledge to annex parts of the occupied West Bank means playing with fire.

RNA - Netanyahu’s "thoughtless and intimidating" remarks are part of the Americans and Israelis’ vicious plan dubbed "the Deal of the Century", Amir Abdollahian said on Saturday.

He vehemently condemned Netanyahu's remarks, calling

him the "little Hitler".

Netanyahu is seeking to ignite a war in the region with the support of the Trump administration and the money of some oil-rich countries and then, to shelter from damages of the war under US support, Amir Abdollahian said.

“In case of this measure’s realization, which is a violation of international law, the Palestinian nation and the Resistance will teach a great lesson to Zionists for playing with fire,” he added.

Amir Abdollahian also called on international bodies and all countries to take practical steps to stop the Israeli regime’s measures which threaten global peace and security.

“The Zionist regime's prime minister and Zionists should abandon their dreams and know that the Palestinian and regional fighters cannot wait to teach an unforgettable and historic lesson to Zionists with all their power and experience from 33-day and Gaza wars. And Netanyahu is helping earlier destruction of Israel by his efforts to stay in power,” he said.

His remarks came after Netanyahu said Tuesday that he would move swiftly to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank if voters returned him to power in the election next week.

A spokesman for Palestinian Hamas resistance movement dismissed Netanyahu’s controversial pledge to annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank if re-elected, noting that he is still under the delusion that the Tel Aviv regime could maintain its occupation of the Palestinian land.

Hazem Qasem stated on Wednesday that the Palestinian people would continue their struggle to remove the occupation from their territories, and establish their independent state.

Qasem then accused Netanyahu of wooing his right-wing supporters through selling illusions that the Israeli regime can occupy the Palestinian land forever.

According to Fars News Agancy, the Hamas spokesman later stressed the need for a unified Palestinian front in the face of rightist Israeli policies.

Separately, the European Union warned on Wednesday that Netanyahu's pledge to annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank if he wins next week's election undermines chances for peace in the Middle East region.

“The policy of settlement construction and expansion... is illegal under international law and its continuation, and actions taken in this context, undermine the viability of the two-state solution and the prospects for a lasting peace,” an unnamed EU spokesperson said in a statement.

Moreover, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has reiterated that the Palestinian Authority will cease all agreements signed with the Israeli regime if the latter decides to annex any part of the occupied Palestinian land.

Speaking at a meeting with visiting Luxembourgish Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn and his accompanying delegation in Ramallah on Wednesday, Abbas underscored that Benjamin Netanyahu's vow to annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank eliminates all chances of achieving peace and undermines all international efforts to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

He slammed the pledge as a clear violation of all United Nations resolutions and the international law.
