President blasts cold-blood killing and siege of Gaza population

Tehran, July 16, IRNA – Continued bloodshed, bombardment and siege of innocent people in Gaza Strip has no logic, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a weekly meeting of the cabinet, he noted that only an apartheid regime can bombard thousands of innocent civilians and create bloodbath under the pretext of death of 3 persons.

Gazan people are even deprived of their basic rights such as necessary drugs, Rouhani added.

Expressing concern about the crisis in Iraq and Syria, he asserted that extremist elements have taken gun under the name of Islam to kill Muslims and divide them.

The President hoped for the resolution of crisis in Iraq and Syria with the help of Muslim countries.

The Iraqi and Syrian nations can overcome the crisis through resistance and vigilance towards enemies' divisive plots, he added.
