TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian strongly condemned the recent Israeli attacks on the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and called on the international bodies and world states to make all-out efforts to stop Tel Aviv’s brutal attacks against the defenseless civilians in the besieged enclave.

“International and regional efforts are needed to bring to a halt the Zionist regime’s crimes against the innocent Palestinian nation,” Amir Abdollahian said in a meeting with his Qatari counterpart Mohammad bin Abdullah al-Ramihi in Tehran on Tuesday.

Amir Abdollahian reiterated Iran’s support for the Palestinian nation and resistance groups, and said, “The criminal Zionist regime will be the definite loser of the recent developments.”

The Qatari deputy foreign minister, for his part, said that the continuation of the current situation in Palestine is dangerous, and called for joint Iran-Qatar efforts to put an end to the pains of the Palestinians.

On Tuesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned the harrowing crimes committed by the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people, and took the UN Security Council responsible for them.

“Such crimes show that the Palestinian people are resistant, and that the Zionist regime is not committed to the international rules and regulations and the Security Council is ignoring the rights of the Palestinian people,” Zarif said in an interview with the state-run TV.

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 16 consecutive days, killing at least 670 people and injuring more than 3,700 others.

The Iranian top diplomat underlined that the Gaza people and children are now subject to collective punishment and all the world people and international organizations should grow united in supporting the Palestinians.
