International Quds Day: Iran calls for end to aggression against Palestinians

The Islamic Re­public of Iran has reminded the international community and world govern­ments, especially of Muslim countries, of their responsibil­ity to provide all-out support for the oppressed Palestinian people.

The support must help to end the brutal crimes of the Zionists in the Holy al-Quds, and other occupied regions in Palestine, and in putting an end to the aggressive and escalating actions of the Zionists in the region.

This was contained in state­ment issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran, copied the Ghanaians Times, on the occa­sion of International Quds Day – 2024, which falls today.

The International Quds Day is an annual Pro-Palestin­ian event held on the last Friday of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, to express support for Palestinians and oppose Israel and Zionism.

“The Ministry of Foreign Af­fairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran emphasises the continuation of the principled and constant policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran in supporting the liberation struggles and legitimate resis­tance of the Palestinian nation and the necessity of effective, comprehensive, and deterrent counteraction against the crimes of the occupying and child-killing Zionist regime.

And calls on all Muslim governments and nations and the freedom and truth-seekers of the world to stand in unity and solidarity so as to confront this ‘cancerous tumour’ and disruptor of regional and international sta­bility and security and to provide real and practical aid and support to the oppressed Palestinian peo­ple,” the statement said.

The statement regretted that the Zionist regime of Israel continued to commit its horrific crimes: the massacre of nearly 40,000 innocent infants, children, women and men at the hands of an occupying, racist, and terrorist regime.

“The pursuit of the scorched-earth policy, and the utter ruination of the Gaza Strip by destruction of residential houses, infrastructure, hospitals, schools, mosques and churches and the deliberate starvation to death of its people have continued,” it said.

“The intensification of the desecration of the al-Aqsa Mosque, the first qiblahof world Muslims, and the assault and battery and putting to fire and the sword of the worshipers and the mutakif (i.e., religious retreaters) in the courtyard of this holy premises during the enlightening days of the blessed month of Ramadan, together with the reports that come out on the perpetration of atrocious and shameful crimes by the Zionists,

 as they violate and disrespect Palestinian women and prisoners, have turned not only the Gaza Strip, but the entire Palestinian territory, from an open-air prison for several million Palestinian citizens, into a humanity’s slaugh­terhouse and a cemetery of the human conscience.”

The statement added that the Islamic Republic of Iran “supports and commends the Resistance and backs it as much as possible, but the Resistance has reached a level of maturity, prosperity, and awakening that it decides with firm determi­nation and full legitimacy to defend the oppressed against the oppressor and its support­ers and bravely supports the oppressed people of Palestine.”
