Iran Urges Muslim Countries to Unify to Prevent Israel's Further Crimes Against Palestine
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Seyed Ebrahim Rayeesi strongly condemned the Zionist regime’s acts of aggression against Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan, and further called on the Islamic nations to forge a united front to confront the Israeli criminal actions against the Palestinian people.
President Rayeesi made the remark in phone call with Sultan of Oman Haitham bin Tariq Al Said on Wednesday.
The Iranian president during the telephone conversation congratulated the government and nation of Oman on the imminent occasion of Eid Al-Fitr which marks the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
Referring to the privileged ties between Iran and Oman, Rayeesi discussed with Haitham the implementation of the Memorandum of understandings reached between Tehran and Muscat.
Condemning the assault the barbaric crimes committed by the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people during the fasting month of Ramadan, Iran's president noted that "the cooperation and exchanging views of all Islamic countries will undoubtedly be effective in deterring the Zionists' aggression and the realization of the legitimate rights of the Palestinians".
Sultan Haitham, for his part, voiced his satisfaction with the level of ties with Iran and stressed the implementation of bilateral agreements.
The Sultan of Oman also condemned the desecration of the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex, noting that Muscat will keep its stance on the Palestinian issue until the rights of Palestinians are restored.
Israeli forces stormed the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem during the holy month of Ramadan, firing tear gas and stun grenades and preventing Palestinian worshippers from entering the mosque for dawn prayers. Israeli troops also beat worshipers with batons and riot guns, wounding many, before arresting hundreds.
Several Muslim countries and organizations have strongly condemned the latest aggression, calling on international bodies to stop Israeli crimes and protect the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.
Over the past months, Israel has ramped up attacks on Palestinian towns and cities throughout the occupied territories. As a result of these attacks, dozens of Palestinians have lost their lives and many others have been arrested.
The number of Palestinians killed by Israeli troops since the start of 2023 has reached to 100 people, including several children, in the occupied territories.
The United Nations marked 2022 as the deadliest year for Palestinians in the West Bank in 16 years. Some 171 Palestinians, including more than 30 children, were killed by the Israeli forces in the West Bank last year. At least 9,000 others were injured as well.
Iran describes Israel as the root cause of the region’s instability and insecurity, but also stresses Israel's US-supported barbarity will not change the inevitable fate of the Tel Aviv regime.
Tehran says the history of the apartheid regime is full of assassinations, massacre, torture and killing of Palestinian kids, and described Tel Aviv regime's atrocities and massacre of Palestinian women and children as indicative of the destitute of Zionists. Iranian officials say the Tel Aviv regime has been struggling for more than 70 years to exit its identity crisis which has been mixed with genocide, plunder, forced displacement and scores of other inhumane moves.
