Zionist crimes ring alarm bells in region: Iran Foreign Ministry
The Iranian Foreign Ministry says Israeli crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories have set alarm bells ringing across the region.
The ministry said in a statement released ahead of the International Quds Day, “The flames of the Israeli regime’s acts of sedition have not only engulfed Palestine and al-Quds (Jerusalem) but the entire Middle East.”
Tel Aviv’s support for Takfiri movements has manifested the regime’s brutality all the more, the statement added.
Israel has been accused of helping the Takfiri militants fighting in Syria. According to the documents from Israeli hospitals, until last September, Israel’s military had paid USD 10 million from its budget for the treatment of the terrorists injured during clashes with Syrian government forces.
The documents further revealed that a total of 398 injured militants had also been treated at Galil Hospital in Israel’s northern coastal city of Nahariya in the past couple of years. Another hospital in the city of Safed had provided treatment for hundreds of other Takfiri terrorists.
“The Israeli regime’s organized attempts for the complete judaization of al-Quds and changing its historical identity via constructing settler units, desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque and open measures for its destruction, denying oppressed Palestinians access to holy sites and forced deportation of non-Jewish residents of al-Quds have set alarm bells ringing in the area and created a painful situation there,” the statement by the Iranian Foreign Ministry added.
The statement also called on Iranians to turn out en masse in the upcoming rallies marking the International Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of Ramadan, the Muslim fasting month.
