Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi says the Israeli regime’s killing of innocent Palestinian women and children will spell the end of the occupying entity.

Raeisi made the remarks at the Iranian parliament on Tuesday, as the brutal Israeli war on the Gaza Strip has killed almost 16,000 Palestinians, 70 percent of them women and children, over the past two months.

“The cruelty against the oppressed and powerful people of Palestine is a source of regret for all of us and humanity,” he said.

“We believe that the martyrdom of Palestinian women and children will end the fake Zionist regime and that we will witness the victory of Palestinians as well as the elimination of Israelis.”

The Iranian chief executive also expressed dismay at the support provided by the self-proclaimed human rights advocates, the US and the Western countries, for the Israeli genocide of the Palestinian people.

“It is more unfortunate that the international organizations and institutions, which are responsible for defending the oppressed, have lost their efficiency in the face of the global arrogance and the US power,” he added.

“However, we are not disappointed. We believe that nations have stood up today … for human rights, the implementation of justice and a new world order.”

Israel waged the bloody war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Since the start of the offensive, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 15,899 Palestinians, injured 42,000 others, and left vast swathes of Gaza in ruins.

It has also imposed a “complete siege” on the Palestinian territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to more than two million people living there.
