UN Security Council urged to help stop Gaza massacre

New York, July 23, IRNA - Iran's Ambassador to the UN, Gholam Hossein Dehqani in a UN meeting on the Gaza war on Tuesday urged the Security Council to help stop massacre of Palestinians by the Zionist regime.

He stated that the ongoing crimes in Gaza are the result of six decades of international community's compromise towards this regime's aggressive behavior.

Dehqani called the crimes committed by the Zionist regime including occupation of Palestinian lands as well as their collective torture, imprisonment and execution as crimes against humanity.

The Zionist regime's ongoing assaults on Gaza civilians are clear violations of international rules and regulations, he added.

The envoy condoled with the families of victims of the recent attacks and called for immediate action by the international community to dispatch humanitarian aids to the war-torn region.

The Zionist regime by refusing the ceasefire proposed by the international bodies has ignored all international laws, he asserted.

Dehqani urged the UN Security Council to stop Tel-Aviv attacks and end the Gaza siege.

Rejecting Israeli accusations against Iran, the official noted that Tehran as the chairman of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) supports the Palestinian nation against the Zionist occupation forces.

So far, more than 650 people have been killed and over 3,700 others injured by the Israeli regime despite pressures from the international community to stop the bloodshed.

The Ezzedine al-Qassam brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas, has been launching retaliatory attacks against Zionist occupation forces.

Since July 8, Israeli warplanes have been carrying out incessant airstrikes against Gaza. On July 17, thousands of Israeli soldiers launched a ground invasion into the densely-populated Strip.
