Iranian Vice President Announces Scholarships for Female Students from Gaza Strip Amidst Israeli Attacks

In a significant move, Ensiyeh Khazali, the vice president of Iran for women and family affairs, has declared that Tehran will permit female students from the Gaza Strip to enroll in Iranian universities. This decision comes as education in the besieged Palestinian territory remains suspended due to relentless Israeli attacks.

Iran (IMNA) - Khazali emphasized Iran's commitment to supporting Gazan students who are facing numerous challenges in pursuing their education amidst Israeli aggressions. As a symbolic gesture, three female students from Gaza will be granted scholarships to study at Bou Ali Sina University in Hamadan. The vice president further stated that this initiative aims to pave the way for expanding educational opportunities for Gazan students in other universities.

Khazali specifically called upon women's universities to extend a helping hand to female students from Gaza. She emphasized the importance of demonstrating solidarity with these students, as women play a vital role in shaping the future of their societies. Noting the resilience and bravery of Gazan women, Khazali acknowledged their unwavering determination, citing their courage in sending their children to the resistance front without yielding to shame.

With this announcement, Iran sends a powerful message of support to the female students of Gaza, reaffirming its commitment to advancing education and empowering women in the face of adversity.

She also stated that hosting students from other countries can be effective in introducing Iran’s culture to the world. “In the face of the crimes of the usurping Zionist regime, no practical action, restraint, sanction, or resistance by those who claim to be advocates of human rights and women's rights is visible, which is regrettable for humanity,” Khazali stressed. She called on regional countries to take cohesive action in order to put an end to Israel’s massacre of Palestinian women and children. Since October 7, Israel has been bombing civilian sites across the besieged Gaza Strip including schools, universities and other education centers. Students in Gaza are currently unable to attend classes, as they struggle to stay alive under relentless Israeli attacks. Half of the buildings in Gaza have so far been destroyed, and more than 11,000 people have been killed.

In a recent statement, the speaker emphasized the potential effectiveness of hosting students from different countries as a means to showcase Iran's culture to the world. She expressed disappointment in the lack of practical action, restraint, sanctions, or resistance by those who claim to advocate for human rights and women's rights in response to the crimes committed by the usurping Zionist regime. The speaker called upon regional countries to unite and take decisive action to halt Israel's ongoing massacre of Palestinian women and children.

Since October 7, Israel has been carrying out airstrikes on civilian sites throughout the besieged Gaza Strip, including schools, universities, and other educational facilities. As a result, students in Gaza are currently unable to attend classes, facing constant danger from the relentless Israeli attacks. The destruction of nearly half of Gaza's buildings and the loss of over 11,000 lives have further exacerbated the dire situation.
