Al-Sudani in Tehran

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi says both Tehran and Baghdad attach significance to the fight on terror and any source of insecurity in the region. Raeisi was speaking during a joint presser with visiting Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed al-Sudani, after the two officials held talks in Tehran. The Iranian President said foreign interference will not bring security and stability to the region. He added that any kind of meddling will only add to regional problems. The Iraqi premier, for his part, said the nation will never forget Iran’s support in Iraqis’ fight against terrorism.

Political rights resolution 

The Syrian foreign minister has slammed the UN’s recent anti-Iran human rights resolution, saying the West is using international bodies as a tool to reach its own political goals. In a phone call with his Iranian counterpart, Faisal al-Meqdad described the resolution as arbitrary and unacceptable. The Syrian foreign minister said the move is part of ongoing Western measures against independent states in order to implement destructive agendas. He added that it represents a violation of the sovereignty of those states and their right to follow policies that suit the history and traditions of their people. Iran has strongly condemned the resolution by the UN human rights council, which called for a probe into the country's riots that started in September.

West Bank deadly violence 

Another Palestinian falls victim to Israeli violence in the occupied West Bank, taking the total number of regime killings in the past 24 hours to four. In the latest incident, Israeli forces shot dead a man in an alleged car ramming near Ramallah. Earlier, regime troopers fatally shot two young men near the city. A fourth Palestinian was shot in the head during a raid on the town of Beit Amr in Al Khalil. Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas says such developments will only strengthen the nation’s uprising against the occupying regime. Israel has been carrying out deadly attacks against Palestinians in the occupied West Bank almost on a daily basis. The regime forces have killed more than 200 Palestinians in the area, as well as in Gaza, so far this year.
