Iran outraged by world silence on Israeli crimes against Palestinians
Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Nasser Kanaani has criticized that silence by international community as well as those who claim are flagbearer of human rights in the face of crimes committed by the Zionist regime is deplorable and regretful.
Kanaani wrote on his Twitter account on Sunday: These are examples of a set of targets by the Apartheid regime in recent attacks on the Gaza Strip.
Silence of international community and those who claim that are defending human rights in facing the Zionists’ crimes in Gaza is deplorable and regretful, the spokesman underlined.
Interestingly, the United States State Department has underscored their “full support” for the rights of Israel to defend themselves, Kanaani pointed out.
Alaa Abdullah Riyad Qaddoum, 5, residing in the Shuja'iyya neighborhood of Gaza City, is one of children martyrs who has lost her life in current attacks by the Apartheid regime of Israel on Gaza, he went on to say.
Qaddoum was killed around 4:30 p.m. on August 5 by an Israeli airstrike in the Shuja'iyya neighborhood of Gaza City.
The Foreign Ministry spokesman also emphasized that it is a matter of regret that those who are fake human rights claimants back the occupying regime’s routine crimes against people of a country, which is under occupation, in the name of “rights for defending itself.”
Meanwhile, the latest bout of airstrikes by the Israeli regime in the north and the south of the besieged Gaza Strip has claimed the lives of eight Palestinian children, and the second senior commander of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement.
In a statement on Sunday, Islamic Jihad confirmed that Khaled Mansour, its commander in the south of the Gaza Strip, had been killed in an Israeli raid on Saturday.
Mansour is the second high-ranking member of Islamic Jihad to be killed since Israel carried out airstrikes on Gaza on Friday when it assassinated Tayseer al-Jabari, a senior commander of the Islamic Jihad movement in the north.
