TEHRAN (Tasnim) - The Iranian government declared a day of national mourning over recent Israeli criminal attack on hospital in the Gaza Strip in which over 1000 civilians were killed.
In a statement late on Tuesday, the Iranian government said that Iran will observe Wednesday as public mourning across the country over Israel’s crime against Palestinian civilians.
The statement also strongly condemned the Israeli crime in which innocent women and children were massacred.
It also called on the international community and heads of the Islamic states to condemn the heinous crime and consider it as “massacre and war crime against humanity”.
The statement has also asked world countries to cut their ties with the criminal regime of Israel and expel Israeli representatives from their countries.
Also, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani censured the attack as a brutal act of war crime and genocide.
"By committing this heinous and atrocious crime, The Zionist regime of Israel once again revealed its savagery and inhumanity to the world and proved that it has no slightest adherence to the principles and rules of international law during times of war," he said.
Several hospitals in Gaza City have become refuges for Palestinians hoping to be spared Israeli bombardments, which began on October 7.
Israeli airstrikes on The Al-Ahli Hospital, previously known as Al-Mamadani, has resulted in death of over 1000 civilians, and the death toll may increase as many victims are still under the rubble.
