Palestine Embassy says Gaza civilians killed in Israeli aggression

Tehran, May 8, IRNA – Palestine's embassy in Tehran said Wednesday that Israeli warplanes targeted residential areas in reprisal for mortar attacks by defenders of Gaza.

Condemning the new spate of attacks on Gazans by the Israeli forces, the embassy said, 'Israeli leaders perpetrated crimes against humanity and warcrimes in Gaza by indiscriminate bombardment of the city. The criminal attacks of the Zionist enemy against our patient and resistant people in Gaza are going on.'

At least 30 people have been killed in Gaza over the past few days in the Israeli air raids against Gaza strip.

'They are destroying building on head of the women and children in Gaza, without fretting about the lives of the innocent civilians,' the statement read.

'Our historic resistance has been aimed at confronting the Zionist regime's plots,' it said adding that the fight will not stop until the full annihilation of the regime.

Referring to the violation of peace treaties by the Israeli leaders with regard to the Oslo Accord, the embassy added that the number of Zionist settlers in the occupied territories has increased from 100,000 to one million so that the number of the settlements rose up to 240.

It also described the current US government and president as obeying the Zionist regime, adding that the measures taken by Donald Trump's administration in recognizing Quds city as the capital of Israel, and sovereignty of the regime over the Golan Heights, as well as its stances against Mexico, Venezuela and North Korea have shocked the world.

It noted that the US political, economic pressures and military threats against Iran are also being made in obedience to the Zionist regime, adding that all the pressures are exerted due to Iran's support for the Palestine with Quds as its capital.

The statement called on all Arab and Muslim nations to defend the land and all its sacred elements.
