Iran’s President Slams Israel over Use of Deadly Force against Palestinians

TEHRAN – The president of Iran on Wednesday criticized Israel’s use of deadly force against Palestinian protesters after the Israeli army killed over 60 people in Gaza this week, which prompted demonstrations in Tehran, according to Iran’s semi-official Mehr news agency.

Hassan Rouhani made his remarks during a cabinet meeting, while in central Tehran, around 400 people gathered outside the former US embassy to protest Monday’s killing of Palestinians and the transfer of the United States embassy to Jerusalem.

“(Israel) is not a regime that is committed to morality and even international rules and regulations, only understanding the language of force,” Rouhani said, noting that Israel’s recent actions would make Palestinians more determined to continue resistance.

“Some Islamic countries have simply turned a blind eye to these incidents, and some others have regarded it as (Israel’s) self-defense right, while legitimate self-defense belongs to people who own the land, not to those who have taken lands by usurpation,” the president asserted.

Wednesday’s demonstrations in Tehran saw protesters chanting slogans and setting fire to the Israeli and US flags, while others held posters of US President Donald Trump with the phrase “Go to hell” in English.

The majority of the international community has condemned Israel’s use of lethal force along the Gaza border, in which at least 112 Palestinians have been killed and 12,000 others injured since March 30.

The US blamed the violence on the Islamist movement Hamas, which governs the Gaza strip.
