Pres. Rouhani blasts muted response from Muslim states to Israeli crimes

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani deplored major Muslim neighbors of Palestine for remaining silent on the Zionist regime’s atrocities, saying the Islamic Republic stands alone in supporting the Palestinian people.

Speaking at a weekly cabinet session on Wednesday, Rouhani denounced the brutal Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip and Jerusalem al-Quds.

“The criminal Zionists that kill people have nothing to do with religion,” he said.

The Iranian president also lashed out at certain Islamic governments and neighbors of Palestine which have remained silent after the fresh wave of Israeli aggression, wondering, “Why have the Muslim and big states neighboring Palestine, such as Egypt, Jordan and other countries, remained silent about these crimes?”

Rouhani said Iran is now standing almost alone in supporting the oppressed people of Palestine.

The Israeli regime’s aggression and violations against the Palestinians have witnessed a shocking spike since the beginning of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan.
