A senior Iranian commander says Tel Aviv's apology to Ankara is a new game by the United States, the Israeli regime and Turkey to further affect resistance in the region and the Islamic Awakening in particular, Press TV reported.
"The shock caused by the Zionists' attack on a Gaza-bound international aid flotilla in 2010, which led to the death of nine Turkish activists, created a special position for Turkey in regional equations", deputy chief of staff of Iran's Armed Forces Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri said on Saturday.
He said that under the current circumstances, the global arrogance mainly moves to find a replacement for the Islamic Republic of Iran in the Muslim world, and the elite of the Muslim world should remain vigilant and pay necessary heed to the issue and do not allow the Americans and their allies to humiliate public opinion.
The Iranian commander added that the U.S. and the UK are ceaselessly trying to replace pure Islam with "American Islam", and to achieve that end they have embarked on the project of Islamophobia.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced on Friday a full resumption of diplomatic ties with Turkey after making an apology to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the deaths of nine Turkish activists in the deadly 2010 flotilla attack.
