MP: Israeli Air Raids on Gaza Aimed to Demoralize Resistance

Seyed Ali Aghazadeh Dafsari who is a member of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Majlis told ICANA on Saturday that the Israelis were looking for some pretexts to resume their barbaric attacks on Gaza residents.

He said a number of Zionist militarymen had been killed in an armed confrontation in the Reed Sear resort of Eilat recently which became an excuse for Tel Aviv to attack Gaza despite Hamas denial it had any part in the incident.

Pointing to the upcoming International Qods Day to be held on the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan, the lawmaker said the Zionists were after creating all kinds of provocations and restrictions for the Palestinians in order to shake their spirit and strengthen the current of Abu Mazen (Mahmoud Abbas).

The MP called the victory of the Egyptian revolution a big threat to Israel and said: "Islamic awakening and fall of Western dependent dictators in the Middle East inflicted huge costs on the Zionists. That is why the Israelis are trying to create a safe margin with the help of the US and certain European powers like Britain.

Referring to the UN efforts to recognize an independent Palestinian state, Dafsari noted: "The Zionist regime is trying to prevent this through adventurism and setups and wants to undermine the people's support for the Resistance by provoking the Palestinian community."

Another round of Israeli airstrikes on the besieged Gaza Strip has killed three people, raising the death toll to 16 in two days of attacks.

In one airstrike, Israeli warplanes struck a target in the town of Khan Yunis, but no casualties have been reported from that attack yet.

Medical sources say a five-year-old was among the fatalities of the attacks carried out late on Friday.

The Israeli airstrikes began on Thursday, shortly after eight Israelis were killed near the Red Sea resort town of Eilat.

Dozens of Palestinians have also been injured in the attacks.

Israeli officials have blamed a Gaza-based militant group called the Popular Resistance Committee (PRC) for Thursday's attack and have vowed a “full force” response targeting Gaza.

Israel said the attackers had infiltrated from the Hamas-run Gaza Strip, although the PRC, which is not affiliated with Hamas, denied involvement in the incident.

Hamas has said that it had nothing to do with the assault and has warned against any act of aggression against the Gaza Strip.
