President advises Israel to stop war, remove Gaza blockade

Tehran, July 25, IRNA – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Friday advised the Zionist regime to stop massacre of Gaza people and remove blockade of the enclaved region.

Speaking on the sidelines of Quds Day rallies, he stressed that that arms and weapons can not help the Zionist regime continue occupation of Palestinian lands any more.

The President urged the Zionist regime to abide by the international demand to stop its assaults against Palestinians and remove Gaza blockade.

The Muslim world, he added, should regard the Quds Day as the day to shout out hatred towards Israel.

Calling Israel crimes in Gaza as anti human and genocide, he noted that the Muslims should be united against Israel.

Referring to certain states which are maintaining silence towards Zionist regime crimes in Gaza, the President underlined that history will make its own judgements about the countries and individuals who are silent towards the crimes committed by Zionists in Gaza.

Millions of Iranians took to streets all over the country today to show their full support for the oppressed Palestinian nation against Israeli occupation and aggressions, specially its recent air and ground attacks on the defenseless people in Gaza.

This year's rallies were held with a higher turnout as Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 18 consecutive days now, killing at least 800 people and injuring more than 5,050 others.

According to the UN, 77% of the victims in Gaza are civilians and defenseless people.
