Iranian President Accuses US, Israel, and Allies of Committing Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity in Gaza

Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi has strongly criticized the United States for vetoing a UN Security Council resolution that called for a pause in Israel's attacks on Gaza. In a speech delivered in Tehran, President Raeisi described the US veto as "double oppression" against the Palestinians and humanity. He emphasized that the ongoing events in Gaza expose the hypocrisy of the West, which claims to advocate for civilization, freedom, and human rights.

Iran (IMNA) - President Raeisi expressed his deep sorrow over the heart-wrenching incidents taking place in Gaza, which have sparked anger and resentment among people worldwide towards both the US and the Israeli regime. He highlighted the injustices committed by the global arrogant system and condemned the US for blocking the draft resolution, which aimed to provide humanitarian assistance and halt the crimes being perpetrated against the oppressed people of Gaza. These innocent civilians have either been forced to flee their homes or have seen their houses destroyed as a result of Israel's relentless airstrikes.

On Wednesday, the US exercised its veto power to block the resolution, which had received support from representatives of 12 countries in the 15-member UN Security Council. The resolution, drafted by Brazil, aimed to facilitate aid access to Gaza amidst the ongoing Israeli airstrikes and shelling. While Britain and Russia abstained from voting, the resolution still required unanimous approval from all five veto-wielding members of the Security Council, including the US.

US Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield defended her country's veto by stating that the resolution failed to acknowledge Israel's right to self-defense. This justification further deepened the divide between those who argue for immediate action to protect the lives of innocent Palestinians and those who prioritize Israel's security concerns.

The US veto has drawn widespread condemnation, raising concerns about the international community's ability to effectively address the escalating crisis in Gaza. As tensions continue to mount, the world watches with growing anticipation for a resolution that will uphold the principles of justice, human rights, and peace in the region.

the Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi, strongly condemned the actions of the United States, Israel, and their supporters, accusing them of committing genocide and crimes against humanity in Gaza. Raisi emphasized that the bloodshed of innocent Palestinian martyrs would ultimately lead to the downfall of the current world order and pave the way for a more just system.

Raisi highlighted the widespread outrage among nations in the Muslim world and across the globe as they witness the heinous crimes being perpetrated against the oppressed Palestinian people in Gaza. He described the ongoing oppression against women and children in Gaza as a testament to the unjust nature of the current world order.

The situation in Gaza has reached a devastating level, with nearly 3,500 people losing their lives during the 11 days of Israeli attacks. The brutal campaign was initiated after the Gaza-based Hamas resistance movement launched retaliatory attacks against Israeli settlers and military forces in response to months of violence against Palestinians and their sacred sites.

The United States, a long-standing supporter of Israel, has continuously shielded the regime from international accountability. Washington's consistent blocking of efforts to hold Israel responsible for its actions has drawn criticism from the international community.

A recent resolution proposed at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), which aimed to cancel the order for civilians in northern Gaza to evacuate to the south in anticipation of a major ground offensive by Israel, was vetoed by the United States. This move further demonstrated the unwavering support of the US for Israel.

As a result of the Israeli bombardment and shelling, over a million people have been displaced within Gaza, rendering them homeless. The Israeli regime has also imposed a crippling siege on the small territory, severely limiting access to water, electricity, and food supplies for the more than 2.3 million people living there.

The situation in Gaza continues to deteriorate, with innocent civilians bearing the brunt of the violence and suffering. The international community remains deeply concerned about the grave humanitarian crisis unfolding in the region.
