Tehran Warns Of Zionist Goals for Creating Regional Insecurity
By Staff, Agencies
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh warned of the ‘Israeli’ entity’s dangerous goals by trying to create insecurity and instability throughout the region, which will ultimately threaten world peace and security.
Referring to the recent developments in the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian territories and the shameful crimes of the occupying regime in Quds, Khatibzadeh said, "The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly condemns the new round of brutal aggression by the Zionist regime against the defenseless people of Palestine and the Gaza Strip, which has resulted in the martyrdom of dozens of civilians, including women and children, and the destruction of many residential buildings."
He stressed that these actions are a clear sign of violations of human rights, humanitarian and international law.
"Unfortunately, thanks to the shameless support of some Western countries, we see that the Zionist regime's aggression has increased. Therefore, the Palestinian people, who are fighting to regain all their rights, have an inherent and natural right to defend themselves," the spokesman added, saying, "As long as the steadfast nation of Palestine achieves all its rights over the entire land of Palestine, legitimate resistance is the only way to counter the aggression and occupation of this regime."
Khatibzadeh went on to say, "Reclamation of Palestinian rights are not just an Arab-Islamic issue, but a global responsibility. The Islamic Republic of Iran - along with the Islamic nations and all the free nations of the world that are committed to defending the oppressed - stands by the heroic people of Palestine."
"Iran calls on governments and international responsible organizations to end their unacceptable neutrality towards the aggressor," Khatibzadeh stressed.
He then highlighted, "We also call on Muslim nations, organizations and governments, especially the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, to stand with the oppressed and defenseless people of Palestine on a united front against the blatant aggression and terrorist acts of the Zionist army."
“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the criminal actions of the occupying regime in al-Quds are a crime against humanity and should be recognized as genocide and a crime against humanity,” he added.
"In addition, we warn the international community that the Zionist regime is trying to achieve sinister and dangerous goals by trying to create insecurity and instability throughout the region, which will ultimately threaten world peace and security," Khatibzadeh noted.
"In this regard, we call on the UN Security Council to fulfill its inherent mission and duty and not to allow the rights of the Palestinian people to be violated by the occupying regime by pressuring it to end its aggression and terrorist operations immediately."
"The only just solution to the Palestinian question is to hold a referendum with the participation of all true Palestinians, Muslims, Christians and Jews, for the right to self-determination," he stressed.
