Iran urges ‘serious’ global response to crimes of Israel in Gaza


Iran has repeated a demand that the international community respond seriously to the crimes of Israel amid the occupying regime’s savage bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip.

Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kan’ani said on Sunday that Israel had displayed a range of “criminal acts” in Gaza and the international community should show a “serious reaction” to such atrocities.

Operation Al-Aqsa Storm by the resistance movement Hamas, he said, was a “turning a point” in the Palestinian resistance against the Israeli occupation.

“The reaction of the Zionist regime to the glorious resistance of the Palestinian people is criminal action in such a way that it takes revenge on the defenseless people in the Gaza Strip,” he added.

Denouncing the West’s inaction towards the crimes of Israel, the  spokesman said, “With the silence of the US and its allies on what is happening to the Palestinian people, the mask was removed from the faces of the so-called human rights advocates.”

Kan’ani pointed to Palestine’s continued resistance against the regime and called on Muslim countries to support Palestinians.

“Islamic countries are obliged to support them,” Kan’ani said. “The Islamic Republic of Iran continues to support the resistance of the Palestinian people in the political field.”

Israel’s incessant bombardment was touched off on October 7 after the surprise Operation al-Aqsa Storm that came in response to intensified Israeli violations against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

According to the Health Ministry in Gaza, over 4,650 Palestinians have been killed and more than 14,000 wounded so far.

On October 17, the regime carried out fatal strikes on Ahli Arab Hospital, where people displaced by the Israeli aggression had sought sanctuary. Two days later, Israel bombed the Greek Orthodox Saint Porphyrius Church, where many Christians and Muslims had taken refuge.

Under international pressure, Israel was forced on Saturday to allow in the first trickle of aid to the besieged territory after the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Gaza opened for the first time in two weeks.

Five United Nations agencies have already sounded the alarm about the humanitarian situation in the besieged area, with UN officials saying the 20 trucks permitted to cross were not enough given the “catastrophic” humanitarian situation of about 2.4 million people.
