The spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry says the awakened world public opinion is resolute to put an end to Israel's war crimes in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

In a post on his X account on Thursday, Nasser Kan'ani said the world public opinion is now vigilant, much to the dismay of the fake and criminal Israeli regime's officials and their supporters.

It is determined to hand over the criminals to competent international courts so that justice will be served, the Iranian spokesman added.

Kan'ani used the hashtag US universities and wrote "massive protests of students and professors against the Zionist regime," in reaction to pro-Palestine protests that have swept American universities. 

Pro-Palestinian academic activism has grown significantly across the US since the onset of the Israeli regime’s US-backed war of genocide against the Gaza Strip.

The United States has been providing the regime with maximal military and intelligence support since October 7, when the latter unleashed the war.

Washington has also vetoed several United Nations Security Council resolutions calling for a ceasefire in the brutal military onslaught that has so far killed at least 34,262 Palestinians, most of them women and children, and injured 77,229.

American students have been raging against their universities’ connection to the Israeli regime and Washington’s all-out support for the genocide.

The Texas Tribune reported on Wednesday that anti-riot troopers were called in to crack down on pro-Palestinian protesters on the campus of the University of Texas as similar rallies heat up throughout seats of learning across the United States.

House Speaker Mike Johnson on Wednesday threatened to use National Guard against students’ pro-Palestinian protests at US universities as he got booed and heckled at Columbia University.
