Iran slams international silence on Israeli war on Gaza


Iran’s First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri has lashed out at international bodies for keeping silent on the Israeli regime’s atrocities in the Gaza Strip.

Jahangiri denounced the Israeli regime’s crimes in the Gaza Strip and said, “International bodies have unfortunately taken up silence and sufficed to only issuing a few statements in support of the oppressed Palestinians and Gazans.”

He added that Israel is carrying out inhuman acts in Gaza amid “the meaningful silence of the West and so-called advocates of human rights.”

“We are witnessing the Zionist regime’s brutal crimes against the oppressed people in Gaza while the region is under siege and there is no possibility to help the people [there],” the Iranian official said.

He added that people in the besieged enclave are brutally killed while countries which claim to defend human rights simply pay no heed to such crimes and even support the criminal.

Jahangiri called on Muslim countries to strengthen their unity against the arrogance.

The Israeli relentless military aggression has taken the lives of more than 1,880 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and wounded over 9,600 others in Gaza since July 8.

The Tel Aviv regime has not even spared hospitals in its large-scale military offensive and continues to pound the medical centers that are in desperate need of medicine and equipment.

International bodies and human rights groups say civilians account for the majority of the victims of the ongoing Israeli war. Women and children make up the bulk of the civilian casualties there.
