The escalating violence in Gaza

Intensifying brutality in Gaza as Israel targets residential areas, resulting in over 25 deaths, including 4 senior commanders.

The recent Israeli aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip has resulted in the death of at least 24 Palestinians, including senior commanders of the Islamic Jihad and civilians. The renewed air raids on Gaza have also resulted in dozens of injuries, particularly among children and women. As the violence intensified, spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Nasser Kanaani urged the Muslim world to support the Palestinian people against the Israeli aggressors, stressing that the occupying regime will face nothing but defeat. 

Severity of the Aggression

The Israeli regime has been relentlessly attacking the besieged Gaza Strip, targeting residential areas and causing significant loss of life. Over 25 Palestinians have been martyred, including children and women, with dozens more injured. The fatalities include four senior commanders of the Islamic Jihad and their families. The al-Quds Brigades confirmed the assassination of Ali Ghali, commander of the rocket launch unit, and other martyrs in southern Gaza. Palestinian resistance groups responded by firing rockets towards Israeli cities, including Tel Aviv, in retaliation for the regime’s deadly air raids. The situation is escalating rapidly, with no clear end in sight. The international community has condemned the Israeli aggression and called for an immediate cessation of hostilities. However, the Israeli regime continues to act with impunity, disregarding international law and the lives of Palestinian civilians. The Palestinian people remain resilient in the face of this aggression, but they need the support of the international community to put an end to this injustice.

Unity and Determination 

The Palestinian people and its resistance groups have shown remarkable unity and determination in the face of the occupier regime. The spokesperson for the Iranian Foreign Ministry highlighted that the Palestinian people and its resistance groups are united, determined, and equipped to confront Israeli aggression. He stressed that the perseverance and struggle of the Palestinian people against the aggressors necessitate the strong and effective support of governments and nations in the Islamic world for Palestine. The joint command of Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza released a statement saying that the resistance will remain in all fronts of the homeland as one unit, a sword, and a shield for our people, our land, and our holy sites. The resistance is ready for all options, and if the occupation persists in its aggression and arrogance, black days await it.

International Community

The international community has a responsibility to condemn Israeli aggression and protect the rights of the Palestinian people. The United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres condemned the Israeli regime’s massacre of civilians in the besieged Gaza Strip as “unacceptable.” However, condemnation alone is not enough. The international community must take concrete actions to hold the Israeli regime accountable for its crimes against humanity. The continued silence and inaction of the international community will only embolden the occupier regime to continue its aggression and violations of international law.
