Iran: Israel benefiting from regional unrests

TEHRAN (FNA)- Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council Mohsen Rezayee condemned the Zionist regime for its crimes against the Palestinian people in Gaza, and said the Israeli regime is using the terrorist operations and unrests in Iraq and Syria to its benefit.

“The Zionist regime’s recent attacks on Gaza after the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) on Syria and Iraq means that Israel makes optimum use of weakening of Islamic governments for the sake of its own interests and it is clear that a premeditated scenario is being implemented,” Rezayee said, addressing a gathering at the University of Tehran on Wednesday.

He noted that the revolutionary governments of Iraq and Syria which are the frontlines of confrontation with Israel have been weakened militarily, financially and economically in recent years as a result of attacks by Takfiris and extremist terrorists and this weakness has surely taken place due to the preplanned plots of the Zionists.

Rezayee urged the Muslim countries, specially the Arab states, to force Israel to stop its attacks or else they will share the crimes.

In relevant remark on Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham strongly condemned the Israeli regime’s attacks on the Palestinian people in different parts of the Gaza Strip, which killed and injured scores of Palestinians.

“Surely, the savage aggressions and killing of the defenseless people which started on the false pretext of abduction of three Israeli settlers and have continued for more than two weeks now and the murder of the martyred Palestinian teenager (Mohammed Abu Khdeir) which is a reminiscent of the crimes committed by the terrorists in Syria and Iraq show incapability and destitute of that regime vis-à-vis the resistance of the heroic people of Palestine,” the Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman said.

Meantime, the Iranian foreign ministry spokeswoman hailed the resistance of the people of Gaza against “these savage actions”, and called on the Muslim and Arab countries as well as Human Rights bodies to support the Palestinians’ decision for prosecuting the Zionist regime for its crimes at the international bodies, including the International Criminal Court (ICC), and also show immediate and effective reaction to the Zionist regime’s inhumane crimes and actions.
