Iran slams Zionist regime’s crimes on Nakba Day occasion
Iran has condemned Zionist regime’s crimes against Palestinians over the past decades on the occasion of Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), when Zionist forces displaced hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their land in 1948.
According to Press TV, the Iranian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on Thursday, renewing its call for an end to the occupation of Palestinian territories.
The ministry said Palestinians have been subjected to Zionist regime’s crimes and oppression on a daily basis since the creation of the Israel regime 67 years ago.
The statement noted that Zionist regime has been threatening global peace and security for decades.
It also blamed the Tel Aviv regime, terrorist groups and certain regional governments for the current crises and conflicts in the Middle East.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry also added that the region, from Syria to Yemen, is burning in the flames of Zionist regime’s plots, violence perpetrated by Takfiri terrorist groups backed by Tel Aviv, and the wrong policies of certain regional governments.
On May 15, 1948, Zionist regime’s forces displaced some 750,000 Palestinians, forcing them to flee to different neighboring countries.
More than 760,000 Palestinians – now estimated to number nearly five million with their descendants – were driven out of their homes on May 15, 1948.
