Iranian Foreign Minister Calls for Muslim, Arab Unity to End Israeli War Crimes in Gaza Strip

Iran's Foreign Minister, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, emphasized the importance of joint efforts by Muslim and Arab countries to put an end to the ongoing Israeli war crimes against the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip. Speaking after attending a Joint Arab Islamic Extraordinary Summit on Israel’s aggression against Gaza in Riyadh, Amir-Abdollahian expressed his belief that if leaders of Muslim countries, along with the general secretaries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the Arab League, unite and take necessary measures, they can bring an end to the war crimes committed by the Zionist regime.

Iran (IMNA) - The summit, as reflected in its final communiqué, strongly condemned the Israeli aggression in Gaza and denounced the occupying regime's "barbaric, inhumane, and brutal massacres" inflicted upon the Palestinian people. It called upon the UN Security Council to take decisive and binding action to halt the ongoing carnage in Gaza. Additionally, the meeting urged the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague to expedite its investigation into the war crimes and crimes against humanity perpetrated by Israel against the Palestinians.

Originally planned for attendance by the 22 members of the Arab League, the summit was expanded to include the OIC, a broader association of 57 predominantly Muslim states.

In a recent meeting, President Raeisi emphasized the urgent need to halt the indiscriminate bombardment of Gaza. He further urged Muslim governments to officially designate the occupying and aggressor regime's military as a terrorist organization.

The conflict between Israel and Gaza escalated on October 7, following Hamas's Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the occupying entity. Tragically, since the onset of this aggression, the Tel Aviv regime has been responsible for the deaths of over 11,100 Palestinians, with the majority being women and children. Additionally, approximately 27,500 others have been injured.

Furthermore, the Tel Aviv regime has imposed a comprehensive blockade on the coastal enclave, severing access to vital resources such as fuel, electricity, food, and water for the more than two million Palestinians residing there.
