TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian physicians in a protest gathering in front of the UN office in Tehran on Saturday condemned the Zionist regime’s attacks on the defenseless Palestinians and voiced readiness for treating the wounded Gazans in the hospitals in Iran.
The Iranian medics in a petition also protested at the Israeli forces’ aggression of the medical centers and hospitals which should remain immune during war based on the international conventions.
“Today, we, as the Islamic Republic of Iran’s medical society, have gathered in front of the UN office in Tehran to convey our message to the UN secretary-general,” Seyed Ali Jamalian, the president of Lavasani hospital in Tehran, said.
Also Taqi Khosravani Moqaddam, the general-manager of Social Security Organization for treatment, said that the organization is ready to transfer the wounded Gazans to Iran.
He said that a number of Iranian medics have announced preparedness to be sent to Gaza but none of them have been dispatched yet.
In relevant remarks on Monday, Iranian Health Minister Seyed Hassan Hashemi said the country’s hospitals and medical centers are ready to receive and treat the Palestinians injured in the Israeli attacks.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s health ministry condemns the attacks (against the Palestinians) and announces its full readiness to supply the needed equipment and medicine for those injured in Gaza,” Hashemi said in a statement.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran’s hospitals are also ready to host those wounded who need medical care and complicated surgical operations,” he added.
Hashemi also called on his counterparts in all the world states, specially the Muslim countries, to break their silence and strive to find a solution for providing the Gaza people with food and medicine.
Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 19 consecutive days, killing at least 870 people and injuring more than 5,800 others.
Four out of every five Palestinians killed during Israel’s ongoing military offensive in Gaza have been civilians, including dozens of women and children.
