Global public opinion permanently turned against Israel: Iran FM
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says the massive protests around the world in support of Palestinians amid Israel’s ongoing onslaught in Gaza underlines the irreversible global public opinion against the occupying regime.
Amir-Abdollahian made the remarks in a post on social media X, formerly known as Twitter, on Sunday, after hundreds of thousands of Indonesian people took to the streets in the capital Jakarata earlier in the day to express solidarity with the Palestinians and call for an end to Israel’s deadly siege of Gaza.
The Iranian foreign minister also admired the “courageous” speech of Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi during the protest rally.
Israel has been bombing Gaza since October 7, when the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas launched the surprise attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, in the occupied territories in response to the Israeli regime’s intensified crimes against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.
The aggression has so far killed 9,770 Palestinians, including 4,800 children.
Israel has also blocked water, food, and electricity to Gaza, plunging the coastal strip into a humanitarian crisis.
Since the beginning of Israeli war on Gaza, Indonesians have gathered several times to show solidarity with the Palestinian people and call for peace in the blockaded enclave.
