Muslim nations must rush to aid Palestinians, crush Israel
Muslim leaders around the world are urging Muslim countries to rush to support the Palestinian people in their fight against Israel, as the terrorist and occupying regime massacres civilians in Gaza.
Israel has stepped up attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip since Palestinian resistance fighters launched an unprecedented military operation against the barbaric regime.
Israel ferociously pounded buildings in Gaza Tuesday as battles continued in southern towns which Palestinian resistance fighters overran during their operation on Saturday.
The Palestinian Health Ministry said Tuesday the Israeli airstrikes have killed at least 704 people and injured more than 3,900 people since the unprecedented operation by Hamas.
Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Tuesday Israel will receive “a heavier slap” for the regime's ongoing massacre of the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip.
The Leader said no Muslim nation in contemporary history has ever faced as much hostile and cruel regime as Israel. Neither has any nation been under as much pressure, siege and shortage as that of the Palestinian nation.
On Monday, the Palestinian health ministry in Gaza said Israel is committing massacre after airstrikes targeted the al-Shati and Jabalia refugee camps, killing a “large number of people.”
“The occupation committed a massacre against an entire neighborhood by targeting the al-Sousi Mosque in al-Shati refugee camp,” Ashraf Al Qidra, a spokesman for the health ministry, said in a statement. “A large number of martyrs and wounded have arrived at al-Shifa Medical Complex.”
Gaza, home to over two million Palestinians, has been under Israeli siege since June 2007. The tight blockade has caused a decline in the standards of living as well as unprecedented levels of unemployment and unrelenting poverty.
Governed by Hamas since 2007, the enclave is under strict siege by Egypt and Israel, which also maintains an air and naval blockade. It has been described by Human Rights Watch as the “world’s largest open-air prison.”
