Iran: US responsible for all crimes of Zionist regime in Gaza

Iran's permanent ambassador to the United Nations says the United States is responsible for all crimes that the Zionist regime is committing against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

Amir Saied Iravani made the comment as he was addressing a Monday session of the UN Security Council.


Iran's ambassador severely criticized the United States over its unbridled support for the Israeli regime’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.


“The US … is responsible for all crimes of the Zionist regime, as it cannot commit any of such savage crimes in Gaza without the consent, order, and all-out political, financial, and military support of, and collaboration with, the United States,” the Iranian diplomat said.


He also slammed Washington for blocking measures taken by the UN Security Council to bring about a ceasefire in the Palestinians territory by vetoing all related resolutions.


“The United States [has] obstructed the Security Council's commitment to fulfill its [UN] Charter obligations in halting the Israeli war machine against the people of Gaza,” Iravani said.


He added, “One clear example is their use of veto here in this chamber that [has] prevented a ceasefire in Gaza despite the global appeal from the international community.”


Zionist regime launched its devastating war of genocide on Gaza on October 7 after the territory’s Palestinian resistance movements carried out a surprise retaliatory attack, dubbed Operation al-Aqsa Storm, against the occupying entity.


The relentless Zionist regime’s military aggression has martyred nearly 19,500 people, most of them women and children. More than 51,000 individuals have been wounded as well.


Since the start of the Zionist regime’s onslaught on Gaza, the US has been the regime's most dedicated ally, supplying it with more than 10,000 tons of military equipment.


Washington has also vetoed all the UN Security Council resolutions that called for implementation of an immediate ceasefire across the besieged Palestinian territory.
