Israel committing ‘flagrant genocide’ in Gaza: Iran Foreign Ministry

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman says the “child-killing” Israeli regime is committing genocide in the besieged Gaza Strip.

In a post on his official X account on Sunday, Nasser Kan’ani reacted to a Saturday announcement by Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, who blatantly claimed the regime has the most moral army in the world which does everything to avoid harm to non-combatants.

70 percent of casualties in Gaza have been children, women, and the elderly.

The death toll since the start of the Israeli carnage on October 7 has surpassed 8,000 with upwards of 20,500 Palestinians wounded.

In his post, Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman published images of children killed by Israel in Gaza. “These photos are just a very small example of the crimes committed by the criminal Zionist regime’s army in the Gaza Strip.”

“The Zionists’ crimes in Gaza amount to flagrant genocide.”

Israel has been attacking Gaza in the wake of Operation Al-Aqsa Storm by the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas on October 7, which was in response to decades-long violence against Palestinians and recurrent incursions into al-Aqsa Mosque. 

Despite the unconscionable toll, on the 23rd day of the war on Gaza, Israel has declared that the war has “entered a new phase.” On Friday, the Zionist forces intensified air, sea, and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip.

Numerous international aid agencies confirmed they lost contact with staff in Gaza after Israel knocked out internet and communications in the occupied territory.

The UN General Assembly has called for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. 120 states voted for the resolution, but the Israelis rejected the call.
