Iranian FM blames UNSC for ignoring Israeli crimes against Palestinians

TEHRAN (FNA)- 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 on Tuesday night.

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.

He called on all Muslim and freedom-seeking people to massively participate in the International Quds Day rallies due to be held on Friday to condemn the Zionist regime’s crimes and support the Palestinians.

International Quds Day is an annual event opposing Israel’s occupation of Beitul-Muqaddas.

Anti-Zionist rallies and demonstrations are held every year on the last Friday of Ramadan in Muslim and Arab countries around the world, and especially in Iran.

The International Quds Day was started by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1979 as a way of expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and underscoring importance of the holy Quds to Muslims.
