Rouhani: israel Preventing Iran’s Medical Aid to Gaza

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani condemned the recent Israeli attacks on the defenseless Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, and said Tel Aviv does not allow Iran’s medical help to reach the Palestinians.

“They (the Israelis) kill children, women and the elderly people and unfortunately do no allow us to help them,” President Rouhani said on Tuesday.

He noted that Iran is ready to send medicine and medical teams to Gaza to treat the wounded people, and said, “We are ready to accept the injured Palestinians in Iranian hospitals.”

On Tuesday, a large number of Iranian students and teachers joined a rally in front of the UN mission in Tehran to extend their full support for the Palestinians who have been under Israeli attacks for 16 consecutive days.

The marchers chanted “Down with israel”, as they were categorically condemning murder of Palestinian student Mohammad Abu Khadir.

The protesters also blasted silence of other countries on killing of innocent Palestinians, and called for Muslims’ unity to confront Israeli crimes.

“The Zionist occupying regime once again confirmed its barbarous nature with cruel killing of defenseless Gazans, especially women and children,” the protesters said in a statement.

Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 16 consecutive days, killing at least 670 people and injuring more than 3,700 others.
