Iran strongly condemned the Zionist regime’s brutal attack against Palestinian worshippers at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Al-Quds.
In a statement released on Saturday, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said Iran roundly condemns the attack from the Zionist regime’s military forces on the first Qibla of Muslims that has led to the injury of at least 200 Palestinian worshippers on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, which marks the International Quds Day.
“Such a war crime has once again proved the criminal nature of the illegitimate Zionist regime and the need for immediate international action in order to stop the violation of the most fundamental principles of the international humanitarian law to the whole world,” the Iranian diplomat was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.
He described the attack as brazen Israeli crime against humanity, calling on the United Nations and the other international organizations to fulfill their duty to act against such war crimes.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is proudly standing by the hero Palestinian people and also calls on all world countries, particularly the Islamic nations, to perform their historical duty and stand with the Palestinian nation against the Zionist aggressors,” the spokesman stated.
More than 200 Palestinians have been injured after Israeli police stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque and dispersed worshippers elsewhere in occupied East Al-Quds.
