Iran: Palestine tragedy will not end unless US, Europe halt support for Israel

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kan’ani has deplored the unwavering support of the United States and Europe for Israel, saying a complete end to such an approach is the sole way to stop the ongoing horrific tragedy in the occupied Palestinian territories.

“Reports coming from #Gaza time and again show that violence and suffering are still the only reality for hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians. This appalling news must be independently investigated, in line with the last International Court of Justice order,” Kan’ani wrote in a post published on the social platform X on Friday.


He added that the crimes of the apartheid Israeli regime against Palestinian civilians, particularly women and children, are “clear to everyone in the world, and of course, they are harrowing and deadly.”


“Not mere words, but only a complete and practical halt to US and European support to the racist Israeli regime can put an end to the painful tragedy and reckless and brutal violence against the people in #Palestine,” he concluded.



According to Palestinian sources, at least 15 people have been killed in Israeli bombing targeting several areas in central Gaza since early hours of Friday.


Also on Thursday, at least 40 Palestinians were killed and dozens wounded when the Israeli military bombed a school of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) in Nuseirat refugee camp.


The UN says 6,000 displaced people were sheltering inside the building when it was hit without warning.


“I woke up to the screams of women and saw torn body parts. One woman lost two or three children,” Om Mohammed Wasi, a displaced Palestinian, said.


The vast majority of casualties and victims are reportedly children, women and elderly people.


“This is state terrorism,” Naiem Khalil, another displaced Palestinian, said. “Israel is targeting UN institutions. Israel violated all international laws, crossed all the red lines. For 76 years, the Palestinians have been appealing to the whole world with no response. UN resolutions are implemented on all other countries, except Israel. This is hypocrisy.”


Zionist regime waged the atrocious onslaught against the Gaza Strip, targeting hospitals, residences, and houses of worship after Palestinian resistance movements launched a surprise attack, dubbed Operation Al-Aqsa Storm, against the usurping regime on October 7.


At least 36,654 Palestinians have been martyred, most of them women and children, and another 83,309 individuals have sustained injuries. More than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced during the war as well.
