Iran condemns Gaza carnage, calls for immediate actions to stop Israel’s killing machine

Children were among those killed in the Israeli strikes on Gaza, on May 9, 2023.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has strongly condemned Israel’s latest terrorist aerial attacks on the besieged Gaza Strip that left dozens killed and injured.

In the early hours of Tuesday, Israel launched airstrikes on several areas across Gaza, leaving 13 people killed, including three high-profile commanders of al-Quds Brigades, the military wing of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad resistance movement, as well as their wives and children. Twenty people were also injured in the attacks.

Spokesman Nasser Kan’ani said silence and inaction of international organizations and Western countries towards Israel’s “inhumane acts”, which have been intensified against the Palestinian people in recent months, have emboldened the Tel Aviv regime to continue its crimes.

He called for immediate, effective, deterrent and coordinated action by Muslim countries to stop the "killing and crime machine" of the Zionist regime.

Kan’ani noted that the Israeli action “is a sign of the weakness of the aggressor regime against the heroic acts of resistance of the Palestinian youth in the West Bank and al-Quds,” adding the airstrikes are aimed at “ diverting public opinion” from the internal crisis in Israel.

Mass protests have gripped the apartheid regime since prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced his proposed "judicial reforms" in January.

The struggle over the plans illustrates the deep divide in Israeli society between supporters of the incumbent right-wing administration, who says the judicial changes are necessary, and the growing number of people opposed to Netanyahu’s plan, who argue that the moves will help Netanyahu bypass some rules as he faces an ongoing trial for corruption.

“That will be recorded in history as a shameful precedent by the false advocates of human rights.”

In his statement, Kan’ani expressed his condolences to the bereaved families and hoped for a quick recovery for the injured.
