MojNews-Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi says that Palestine issue has turned into a source of concern for humanity.
He made the remarks in an address to the International Conference of Al-Aqsa Storm and Awakening of Human Conscience in Tehran on Sunday.
Raisi asserted that the most significant challenge facing the Islamic world today is the issue of Palestine. The president underscored the imperative to end the occupation, hold occupiers accountable, and compensate for damages to bring justice to the Palestinians. He concluded that the continuation of occupation brings neither ownership nor legitimacy, questioning the acceptance of any legal system worldwide allowing the continuation of such a crime.
Raisi reiterated the Islamic Republic's commitment to defending Palestine and resistance groups. Additionally, he emphasized that normalizing relations with the Zionist regime doesn't guarantee security, pointing out the regime's violations of over 400 international agreements related to the Palestinian cause.
The Iranian chief executive underscored that today the world has been disillusioned with Israel and their vile agenda thanks to the sacred blood of Palestinian who were killed in the regime’s genocidal war on the Gaza Strip.
On the topic of human rights, Raisi argued that the concept has become a tool pressuring only certain Islamic countries, while the true violators of human rights are free to continue their crimes. He called for exposing the true nature of the United States and countries supporting the Zionist regime to the world.
Israel waged the brutal war on besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas resistance carried out an unprecedented operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for its intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.
The Tel Aviv regime has caused the death of at least 23,843 Palestinians and injured 60,317 others.
The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is currently reviewing a case presented by South Africa, alleging that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza. The court, based in The Hague, has been urged to issue an immediate order to stop Israeli aggression against the Palestinians.
Raisi expressed the belief that the entire humanity would appreciate a fair decision from the International Court of Justice for Gaza and emphasized that the continuation of occupation only intensifies the situation for the innocent Palestinians.
