Iran's Majlis (Parliament) speaker Ali Larijani has forthrightly condemned the criminal and anti-humanitarian actions of the Israeli regime against Palestinian protesters.

During peaceful protests held by Palestinians in the Gaza Strip last Friday, Israeli snipers shot and killed 15 Palestinians, most of whom were under 16 yeas of age.  About 1,500 Palestinians were injured by indiscriminate firing of live rounds. others. None of the Palestinian protesters were armed. 

Larijani described the act as 'continuation of crimes committed by Zionists, with help and support of the US government.'

He also referred to the Israeli policy of creating tensions and crisis and also President Trump’s decision to relocate US embassy from Tel-Aviv to Beit-ul-Moqaddas, as dangerous conspiracies that have threatened stability and security of this region.

Larijani said:  "The terrorists ruling Tel Aviv only understand the language of force.  The Resistance is the most important element in countering the Zionist regime’s ambitious goals".

Elsewhere in his remarks, Larijani urged Islamic and world parliaments to support the legitimate rights of Palestinians, by taking all necessary actions, and by denouncing the Zionists.
