Iranian president: Murder of 15,000 Gaza children spells the end of Israeli regime

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi says the murder of 15,000 children in Gaza by Israeli occupation forces spells the end of the Zionist regime.

Raeisi said on Tuesday that the blood of martyred Gaza children is so powerful that it would not only end the regime but also lead to an end to global injustices.

"We do not doubt that the blood of 15,000 Palestinian children, which was shed on the ground, will end the lives of the Zionists and make the current world order just," he said.

The Iranian president was addressing the 5th International Congress of Imam Reza (AS) held in the northeastern Iranian city of Mashhad.

He also praised the pro-Palestine protests on university campuses in the United States, expressing admiration for the thousands of American students who have courageously stood up for the truth.

The Iranian president said that the people of the world have understood that the current system ruling the world is not fair and must be changed.

“Who would have thought that universities in the West and East of the world would stand up to demand rights like this?” he asked.

The lone purpose of all nations has become the defense of the oppressed people of Palestine and to protest against the oppressors.

"Today, the world of humanity has realized that the Zionist regime is a cancerous tumor and this tumor must be destroyed so that not only the Middle East region but the world can achieve peace and security," Raeisi said.

Israel launched brutalities in Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Israel has killed more than 35,170 Palestinians, mostly women and children, in Gaza since that October day. 

Palestinian children are one of the most vulnerable demographics affected by the US-Israeli genocide.

The Israeli onslaught on Gaza has inflicted immense suffering on innocent civilians, particularly children, whose lives have been shattered by airstrikes, displacement, and loss.
