Iran Condemns 'Brutal' Israeli Gaza Hit

Mehmanparast blasted Tel Aviv for the recent spate of attacks on the blockaded coastal sliver, saying it was a repeat of Israel's “brutal” aggression on the coastal enclave.

“The illegal Zionist regime (Israel) uses the current warmongering atmosphere in the region as a pretext to achieve its own ominous objectives,” The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman said on Thursday.

He noted that Israel has once again slain innocent people in Gaza.

“As in the past, the Iranian nation will stand by the resistant Palestinian people and insists on the firm determination of free nations in the world to defend holy ideals of the Palestinians,” the official added.

At least 10 Palestinians, including four children, have been killed and more than 50 injured after Israel launched air strikes on the Gaza Strip on Tuesday. The Israeli attacks began with the unprovoked killing of two Hamas security personnel on March 16.

Israeli forces have carried out large numbers of ground and air attacks on Gaza since the end of Operation Cast Lead against the enclave.

More than 1,400 Palestinians were killed during the three-week Israeli land, sea and air offensive in the impoverished coastal sliver during the winter of 2008-2009. The offensive also inflicted USD 1.6 billion damage to the Gazan economy.

Israel laid an economic siege on the Gaza Strip in June 2007, after Hamas took control of the enclave.

The blockade has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the Gaza Strip.

Some 1.5 million people are being denied their basic rights, including freedom of movement, and their rights to appropriate living conditions, work, health and education. Poverty and unemployment rates stand at approximately 80 percent and 60 percent, respectively, in the Gaza Strip.
