Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the Israeli regime is using the US weapons to attack innocent Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip.
“We know that all the weapons that are used by Israel in order to attack civilians in Gaza have been provided by the United States,” Zarif said in an interview with NBC’S Meet that Press.
However, the United Nations has not taken any action to condemn the US move and to use the Security Council in order to put an end to it, he added.
He called for an “immediate end” to the Israeli regime’s airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.
“The United States and the rest of the members of the Security Council have a moral and legal responsibility to put an end to this,” Zarif pointed out.
“We call for an immediate end to all of these activities,” he added.
Asked if he condemns Hamas for launching rockets into Israel, Zarif said, “We do not condemn people who are defending themselves.”
“We believe that actions that are putting civilians in jeopardy in Gaza, that have placed restrictions on civilians to get access to medicine and to food…need to be vehemently condemned by the international community ,” he added.
The death toll from the five days of Israeli strikes on the Gaza Strip has risen to at least 125.
More than 800 people were injured in the latest round of Israeli attacks on Gaza since July 8. Most of the victims have been women and children.
