Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi says Muslim countries should sever all political and economic relations with Israel to force the regime to stop its crimes against the people of Palestine.

In a telephone conversation with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday, Raeisi said the US administration continues to provide Israel with extensive unqualified financial and military support.

"One of the most effective ways to force the Zionists to stop crimes in Gaza is to cut off all political and economic relations with this regime."

The president said people in the besieged Gaza Strip are suffering terribly from Israel's crimes, notwithstanding a recent adoption of a United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire.

Israel is not committed to any resolution, law and international treaty and its violation of over 400 international statements and resolutions clearly exposes its aggressive and anti-human nature, Raeisi stated.

The Iranian president called on heads of Muslim states to take a decisive measure to stop Israel's genocide in Palestine.

He underscored the importance of boosting synergy among the member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and other regional and international bodies to send humanitarian aid to the people of Gaza.

Israel began its brutal US-backed campaign of death and destruction in the Gaza Strip on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.
