Iran condemns UN Security Council’s silence on Israeli crimes against Palestinians

Iran’s envoy to the UN has denounced the silence of the Security Council regarding Israeli violations of Palestinians’ rights, saying the inaction has rendered the UN resolutions ineffective

Amir Saeed Iravani made the remarks n an address to a UN Security Council session on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, in New York on Tuesday.

“It is regrettable that the Security Council has remained silent, rendering UN resolutions ineffective and leaving the Palestinian people to suffer ongoing atrocities,”

“The absence of accountability has emboldened this despicable regime to continue violating all UN resolutions, including those adopted by the Security Council,” Iravani said.

He lamented the fact that for the last 75 years, the Palestinian people have been victims of the Israeli regime’s unrelenting aggression, violence, and injustices, saying the occupation of their land continues, with cities being blockaded, property and farmlands being destroyed and confiscated, and people being forced to evacuate their homes.

“Since the beginning of the year, Palestinians have been subjected to excessive violence, suppression, and terror by both illegal Israeli settlers and armed forces. This has resulted in the detainment and assassination of civilians, and the killing and martyring of 100 Palestinians, including 21 children,” Iravani said.

Over the past months, Israel has ramped up attacks on Palestinian towns and cities throughout the occupied territories. As a result of these attacks, dozens of Palestinians have lost their lives and many others have been arrested.

Most of the raids have focused on the West Bank cities of Nablus and Jenin, where Israeli forces have been trying to stifle a growing Palestinian resistance against occupation.

Local and international rights groups have condemned Israel’s excessive use of force and “shoot-to-kill policy” against Palestinians.
