Iran slams Israel's violence against Palestinians
TEHRAN, Oct. 19 (Xinhua) -- Iran's ambassador to the United Nations said Israel commits repeated "crimes" against the Palestinians, Press TV reported on Friday.
He made the remarks during an address to a UN Security Council meeting on Thursday to discuss the latest status of the Palestinians.
"The situation in Palestine is deteriorating. Only during the recent March of Return protests in Gaza, more than 80 have been martyred and 22,000 others injured as a result of Israeli violence," Gholam-Ali Khoshroo said.
"The Israeli regime kills them because they are Palestinians; because it considers them not to be entitled to any rights, and not even the right to live," Khoshroo added.
He urged the international community not to allow the rights of the Palestinians to be violated by Israel.
