President Raeisi calls for action to stop US-Israeli Gaza genocide in New Year message

Iran’s President Ebrahim Raeisi has called for serious practical steps to stop the Zionist regime’s attacks on war-torn Gaza in his New Year message to Asian countries celebrating Nowruz.

The Iranian president said Nowruz is a message of peace and peaceful coexistence and also a symbol of reconciliation.


“This year, we, the countries of the Nowruz civilization zone, are celebrating this auspicious occasion while the oppressed and powerful people of Gaza are facing the brutal attacks of the usurper Zionist regime, and are also under complete siege, being deprived of having access to basic health and livelihood facilities and are in danger of starvation and famine,” Raeisi said.


“It is our human duty to use our capabilities to take serious practical steps to stop the attacks of the Zionist regime and send humanitarian aid to the oppressed people of Gaza,” he said in a message addressed to the leaders and people of the countries of the Nowruz civilization zone.


Zionist regime waged its war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance group carried out Operation Al-Aqsa Storm against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.


Since the start of the US-Israeli genocide, the Zionist regime has martyred at least 31,819 Palestinians and injured 73,792 others.


The Zionist regime has also imposed an all-out blockade on the territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.


The United Nations says children in Gaza are of hunger, and severe famine is looming large.


In a separate New Year message addressed to the Iranian people, President Raisi hailed Gaza’s resolute resistance against the brutal Israeli onslaught.


"The global powers used all their might to annihilate the two million free people of Gaza,” he said.


“They provided the Zionists with everything from the newest and most modern bunker-busting bombs to billions of dollars, but they could not succeed."


In his remarks, President Raisi also addressed his administration’s economic policy, touting achievements including an increase in the economic growth rate to around six percent in the previous Iranian year and attracting 11 billion dollars in foreign direct investment.


He noted that his administration has enhanced cooperation with neighboring countries, as well as with Latin America and Africa, and has joined influential international groupings, including BRICS.


President Raisi asserted that the Iranian economy is expected to continue to grow in the new Iranian year.


“I assure you that with the participation of you dear and noble people, the year 1403 will be the year of greater boom in production and economy, further reduction of the inflation rate, and extensive service to the dear people.”
