The Iranian kindergarten goers with their peaceful protest rally in Tehran showed they support the children of Gaza and they want the UNICEF to probe into the conditions of the children of Gaza.

“I Support You Palestinian Children”, “Hello to the Red Siblings of Gaza” and “Children Deserve Living in Peace and Tranquility” were among the slogans chanted by the protesting children.

The Iranian kindergarten students were accompanied by their teachers in their peaceful rally.

Last week, Iran’s Vice-President for Legal Affairs Elham Aminzadeh demanded international circles, particularly the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, to break their deadly silence on the crimes committed by the Zionist regime against the oppressed Palestinian people.

“When a criminal regime commits genocide, occasionally the international tribunals adopt very good mechanisms; however, sometimes they keep silent and become complicit in crimes against humanity with inaction,” said Aminzadeh.

She pointed out that war criminals in the former Yugoslavia were brought to justice by the International Court of Justice in The Hague, asking the international tribunals to do the same with the Israeli leaders.

“Surely, repetition of the attacks on Gazans is the outcome of the international tribunals’ inaction to the Israeli leaders’ brutalities against the enclaves’ civilians in last 10 years,” the official underscored.

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 28 consecutive days, killing at least 1,822 people and injuring more than 10,000 others.

Four out of every five Palestinians killed during Israel’s ongoing military offensive in Gaza have been civilians, including dozens of women and children.
