Iran condemned on Monday Israeli aggression on Palestine, stressing that the acts of the ionist regime must be considered crimes against humanity.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns the new round of brutal aggression by the Zionist regime against the defenseless people of Palestine and the Gaza Strip, which has resulted in the martyrdom of dozens of civilians, including women and children, and the destruction of many residential buildings,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh said.
He stressed that these actions are a clear sign of violations of human rights, humanitarian and international law.
“Unfortunately, thanks to the shameless support of some Western countries, we see that the Zionist regime’s aggression has increased. Therefore, the Palestinian people, who are fighting to regain all their rights, have an inherent and natural right to defend themselves,” the spokesman added, saying, “As long as the steadfast nation of Palestine achieves all its rights over the entire land of Palestine, legitimate resistance is the only way to counter the aggression and occupation of this regime.”
Khatibzadeh went on to say, “Reclamation of Palestinian rights are not just an Arab-Islamic issue, but a global responsibility. The Islamic Republic of Iran – along with the Islamic nations and all the free nations of the world that are committed to defending the oppressed – stands by the heroic people of Palestine.”
“Iran calls on governments and international responsible organizations to end their unacceptable neutrality towards the aggressor,” he stressed in his weekly press conference on Monday, as quoted by Mehr news agency.
The FM spokesman highlighted, “We also call on Muslim nations, organizations and governments, especially the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, to stand with the oppressed and defenseless people of Palestine on a united front against the blatant aggression and terrorist acts of the Zionist army.”
The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the criminal actions of the occupying regime in Al-Quds are crimes against humanity and should be recognized as genocide, he added.
“In addition, we warn the international community that the Zionist regime is trying to achieve sinister and dangerous goals by trying to create insecurity and instability throughout the region, which will ultimately threaten world peace and security,” Khatibzadeh noted.
