Iran says the unlawful killing of innocent civilians in the Gaza Strip clearly demonstrates Israel's 'inhumane' and 'terrorist nature'.
"International silence concerning Israeli crimes against civilians in the Gaza Strip greatly contrasts the West's so-called respect for human rights," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad-Ali Hosseini on Thursday.
Hosseini denounced Israel's atrocities in the occupied territories, affirming that such 'stony silence will only embolden the Zionist regime to continue its cruel actions against Gaza's innocent civilians'.
Israel's military assault against Gaza this week is credited with at least twenty killed Palestinian civilians and a Reuters' photographer who was targeted despite his obviously marked vehicle.
The Zionist regime has again halted the flow of oil, food and medicines to the Strip.
The situation in the Strip is so grim that the Gaza Health Ministry has appealed to their colleagues around the world, saying Wafa hospital has canceled surgeries because it has run out of anesthetic nitrous oxide, the gas used in serious surgeries.
