British ambassador summoned
Iran’s Foreign Ministry has summoned the UK ambassador to Tehran over what it calls the continuation of interventionist remarks by British officials on the country’s internal developments. In a statement, the ministry said it also lodged protest against the UK’s support for terror and rioting and its decision to impose sanctions on Iran over its response to the riots. The statement said the efforts by London and UK-based media to incite riots will lead them to nowhere and will rather breed the Iranian people’s hatred toward Britain. The statement said Iran reserves the right to respond, in kind, to anti-Iran sanctions. The UK has repeatedly censured Iran over its actions against rioting and vandalism in the country, accusing Tehran of staging a crackdown on peaceful protesters. London has imposed several rounds of sanctions on Iranian individuals and entities citing similar pretexts.
‘Stop Israel crimes’
The Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has called on the UN and the international community to put an end to the escalating Israeli crimes being committed in the occupied West Bank and al-Quds. The movement issued the call in a statement on the international human rights day. Hamas said the world should help end the unjust siege imposed on the Gaza Strip, and enable the Palestinian people to defend themselves with all means possible until the occupation is ended. The Israeli regime has recently intensified its deadly crackdown on Palestinians. Israeli forces have killed nearly 220 Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and the besieged Gaza Strip this year so far.
Peru political turmoil
Peru’s interim President Dina Boluarte has hinted about the possibility of an early election amid unrest over her appointment following the removal and arrest of her predecessor. Boluarte also urged calm, saying former president Pedro Castillo's attempted coup had surprised the whole country including ministers who backed him. She emphasized that the country is going through economic and food crises that need to be solved. Boluarte is currently trying to form a new government even as demonstrators are flocking to the streets of cities, including the capital Lima. Protesters have clashed with police for a second day, demanding the release of Castillo.
