BFnews: Larijani said in an address to the open session of Majlis on Tuesday: After the disgrace in (US-brokered) talks (between the Palestinian Authority and Israel), certain clumsy measures taken in Lebanon are another defeated adventurism.

He added: The US and the Zionist regime (Israel) will definitely face minefields at this juncture.

Larijani pointed to the second anniversary of a devastating war Israel launched on the Gaza Strip in December 2008, which claimed the lives of hundreds of Gazans and urged the West to learn from the past mistakes.

He noted: Two years of blockades against the oppressed Gazans on the one hand and brave resistance of the Palestinians on the other should be a lesson for the West not to play with the fire of wrath of the Palestinian people.

Tel Aviv staged an all-out war on the densely populated coastal sliver three days before the turn of 2009. Twenty-two days of land, sea and air strikes left more than 1,400 Palestinians, including at least 300 children, dead and nearly 5,000 more injured.

The offensive leveled 4,000 houses in the blockaded territory and devastated a large portion of infrastructure. More than 50,000 people were displaced as the result of the three-week war.
