Tehran, Aug 12, IRNA – Veteran Iranian actor Ezzatollah Entezami went to the United Nations Office in Tehran on Monday to ask the organization to stop Israelˈs brutal war on Gaza.
“We support the Palestinians and I hope the war and bloodshed stops soon,” the 90-year-old Entezami told reporters while he and his family members were leaving the United Nations office.
“I really feel sad to see that the children in Gaza are being killed every day,” he stated, adding, “We are here to stop the killing of the children.”
Entezami’s son, Majid, who is the former conductor of the Tehran Symphony Orchestra, his children Sorush and Golnush, and a number of people also accompanied Entezami during the meeting.
