Iran Condemns Israeli Aggression, Supports Palestine's UN Membership on Nakba Day

Iran's foreign ministry issued a statement on Nakba Day, condemning the continued Israeli aggression against Gaza and declaring the country's support for Palestine's full membership at the United Nations.

Iran (IMNA) - In the statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran termed the 14th of May 1948 as the beginning of the "calamitous period of the occupation of Palestine and the clear violation of the rights of the Palestinian oppressed people, especially their right to self-determination."

The ministry described Nakba Day as the anniversary of the establishment of the "apartheid and occupying Zionist regime in the heart of the Islamic world with the malicious conspiracy of British colonialism and the beginning of the bloody period of genocide, massacre, displacement, occupation, and desecration of the holy land of Palestine."

The Iranian foreign ministry called the Zionist regime a "clear symbol of organized terrorism" and said that the discovery of mass graves in Gaza hospitals portrays a "horrible picture of this brutal regime's crime against humanity."

The statement also condemned the killing of more than 35,000 innocent people and the injury of 75,000 people in the occupied Palestinian territories by the Zionist regime, with the support of the United States in the past seven months.

The ministry emphasized Iran's steadfast position regarding the issue of Palestine and declared its solidarity with the cause of the Palestinian nation, stating that the issue of Palestine is at the top of the issues of the Islamic world.

Iran also declared its support for the full membership of Palestine in the United Nations, considering it as the "first step and turning point in dealing with the historical injustices that the Palestinian people have endured with patience and trust."

The statement concluded by saying that the occurrence of recent anti-Zionist events lays the groundwork for future events, which will lead to the complete removal of the occupation from the Palestinian land and the realization of the historical rights of its people, especially the formation of an independent and unified state of Palestine, with the holy al-Quds as its capital.
