IRNA asks media to reflect on Zionist war crimes in Gaza

Tehran, July 30, IRNA – IRNA Chief Mohammad Khoddadi on Wednesday asked heads of news agencies in more than 50 Muslim states to accomplish their humanitarian and professional mission as the world media, especially those in Muslim states, in giving coverage to the war crimes and injustice of the Zionist regime in the case of the defenseless people of Gaza.

"In our news outlets, let's echo the global community's demands that the siege of Gaza Strip will be lifted soon and that a fact-finding mission will investigate the war crimes of the Israeli regime in the occupied Palestine," read Khoddadi's message to heads of news agencies in more than 50 Muslim states.

Khoddadi urged ending siege of Gaza and formation of a fact-finding mission to investigate the war crimes of the Israeli regime in the occupied Palestine.

The message read, "While wishing all of you the best in life and career, you colleagues at the Islamic Republic News Agency trust that the mass media in the Islamic World will accomplish their humanitarian and professional mission of giving coverage to the hardships of the oppressed Palestinian nation."

Elsewhere, the message said, "We pray to Almighty Allah that this finds all of you in excellent health and spirit following the holy month of Ramadan and its heavenly blessings. As Muslims around the world are celebrating the advent of the Eid-ul-Fitr, our brethren and sisters in Gaza are being massacred under brutal attacks of the Israeli war machine."
