Iran FM spokesman condemns Zionist regime atrocity in Gaza Strip

23 Dec 2014 - 0:13

Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has strongly condemned Zionist regime atrocity in martyring and injuring a number of residents of the Gaza Strip, calling on the UN to stop Israel’s criminal and aggressive acts against Palestinians.

Expressing sympathy with the families of the martyrs and the injured, Ramin Mehmanparast emphasized that the Israeli regime is committing such crimes in the besieged Gaza Strip in a bid to escape from domestic woes as well as the loss of its security due to the developments following Islamic Awakening in the region.

Iran expects the UN to fulfill its obligations towards Palestinians and stop Israel’s “criminal and aggressive acts” against the Gaza Strip and adopt the necessary measures to prevent their recurrence, Mehmanparast was quoted as saying on Friday.

“As the rotating president of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Islamic Republic of Iran expects all international institutions affiliated to the United Nations to adhere to their responsibilities towards the Palestinian nation,” Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman added.

Three Palestinian people were killed and several others were injured after an Israeli tank fired a Flechette shell at a group of Palestinians in the Beit Hanoun town in the north of the coastal enclave on Thursday, Press TV reported.

Three others lost their lives when an Israeli fighter jet targeted a car in central Gaza on Wednesday.

Gaza has been blockaded by Tel Aviv since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.
