TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The US’ move to grant consent to the resumption of the Israeli regime’s strikes on the Gaza Strip lays bare the true image of American human rights and amounts to a major moral scandal for Washington, the spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.
In a post on his X account on Saturday, Nasser Kanaani deplored the renewal of Israel’s “brutal military attacks” on Gaza, which have killed around 200 people and injured 600 others during only 24 hours after a week-long ceasefire.
He said the Israeli strikes, which have resumed with the green light given by the US, add to an endless litany of war crimes, infanticide and genocide that have resulted in the gruesome killing of over 16,000 Palestinians during 48 days.
“This amounts to a major moral scandal for the US government and has shown the true face of American human rights to the world,” Kanaani stated.
The Israeli regime has renewed the bombardment of Gaza, hitting areas across the enclave after the end of a week-long truce.
UN humanitarian chief has again called for a ceasefire in Gaza, saying Palestinians in the besieged territory are “surrounded by disease, destruction and death”.
More than 15,500 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since October 7.
