Navideshahed: Iran has called on the United Nations to fulfill its obligations towards Palestinians and stop Israel’s “crimes”? following the death of six people in the latest Israeli attacks on the blockaded Gaza Strip.

“As the rotating president of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Islamic Republic of Iran expects all international institutions affiliated to the United Nations to adhere to their responsibilities towards the Palestinian nation,”? Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Friday.

Iran also expects the UN to condemn Israel’s “criminal and aggressive acts”? against the Gaza Strip and adopt the necessary measures to prevent their recurrence, he added.


He emphasized that the Israeli regime is committing such crimes in the besieged Gaza Strip in a bid to escape from domestic woes as well as the loss of its security due to the developments following Islamic Awakening in the region.

Three Palestinian people were killed and several others were injured after an Israeli tank fired a Flechette shell at a group of Palestinians in the Beit Hanoun town in the north of the coastal enclave on Thursday.

Three others lost their lives when an Israeli fighter jet targeted a car in central Gaza on Wednesday.

The Israeli military frequently attacks the Gaza Strip, saying the acts of aggression are being committed for defensive purposes. However, disproportionate force is always used in violation of international law, and civilians are often killed or injured.

Gaza has been blockaded by Tel Aviv since 2007, a situation that has caused a decline in the standard of living, unprecedented levels of unemployment, and unrelenting poverty.

The Iranian spokesperson also expressed his sympathy with the Turkish government and nation over an explosion that rocked an ammunition depot in western Turkey on Wednesday.

The Turkish army announced in a Thursday statement that at least 25 Turkish troops were killed and four others wounded in the explosion in the city of Afyonkarahisar.

The statement did not reveal the reason behind the incident that caused a fire in the depot where hand grenades were stored.

Turkish authorities rejected any act of terrorism or sabotage in the explosion.
