According to Iran Press News Agency, Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, Speaker of Iran's parliament, said on Sunday in his pre-agenda speech that Nakba Day and the proclamation of the illegitimate existence of the usurping Zionist regime are reminiscent of more than seven decades of occupation, genocide, cruelty, and crimes of the Zionists and the displacement of the Palestinians and the occupation of their lands.

Ghalibaf added: "On the eve of this very day, the martyrdom of the Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh by the criminals of the Zionist regime once again revealed the depth of the brutality of this regime in the eyes of the people of the world."

The Speaker also said: "I offer my condolences on the martyrdom of this brave journalist to all those who believe in the Palestinian cause, especially the members of the Resistance Media, and I strongly condemn this unfortunate incident."

"Any escalation of violence in the occupied territories by the criminal Zionist occupiers will lead to stronger reactions from those who are loyal to the Palestinian cause, " he stated.

Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh was shot in the head by Zionist militants while covering the Zionist attack on the Jenin camp in the northwest of the Jordan River.
