Iran, Lebanon FMs discuss human tragedy in Gaza over phone

Tehran, July 23, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Lebanese counterpart Gebran Basil, in a phone conversation on Wednesday reviewed the humanitarian tragedy underway in Gaza Strip.

The two foreign ministers discussed the latest developments on the battlefield in Gaza.

The Zionist regime began disproportionate bombardment of civilian targets in Gaza from the air, land and the sea since July 8 which has claimed more than 500 lives so far.

Israeli army tanks subjected the residential areas, schools, hospitals and public services installations to indiscriminate shellings in the context of the so-called ground offensive.

Reporters in Gaza say that Israel is pursuing ethnic cleansing in Gaza and deliberately seeks to take heavy tolls on the civilians enjoying support from Washington.
