Israeli genocide in Gaza
There are no signs of a let-up in Israel’s relentless strikes on the Gaza Strip as the regime’s attacks keep taking their toll on the civilian population. According to the Health Ministry in Gaza, at least 71 Palestinians were killed and some 160 wounded in fresh Israeli bombardments of the strip. Over a dozen people were also reportedly killed and dozens wounded when Israeli warplanes targeted a home in a refugee camp in the city of Khan Younis. At least four other people lost their lives in an attack on a home in central Gaza. Another 5 Palestinians were martyred and several others wounded in the Israeli onslaught on Rafah City, south of the coastal sliver. Health officials say many hospitals have already stopped functioning across Gaza due to the relentless Israeli attacks. The remaining ones are struggling to cope with an overwhelming number of injured people.The death toll from more than two months of Israeli air attacks tops 17,500.
Global support for Gaza
People in several countries, including Yemen, have staged fresh rallies in support of Palestinian people, condemning the Israeli aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip. Yemenis rallied in the capital Sana’a as well as the city of Sa’ada, reiterating their solidarity with the Palestinians. In Jordan, people took to the streets of the capital Amman and the city of Aqaba. They blamed the US support for Israel for the genocide in Gaza, calling for a boycott of American products. They also denounced the Western countries’ silence on Israeli massacres. Similar protests also took place in the North African country of Tunisia and Bahrain as well as several parts of the occupied West Bank. Spain also saw a similar protest, with people unfurling a replica of an iconic painting by Pablo Picasso which symbolizes the horrors of war on civilians.
Iran says the US and Israel are killing women and children in Gaza to make up for the collapse of their fake grandeur. Vice President Mohammad Mokhber said Israelis and Americans have failed to achieve their goals in the war on Gaza. He added, they’re taking the revenge for their failure by killing women and kids. Mokhber was speaking during a joint presser with the visiting Syrian Prime Minister in Tehran. The two sides signed six cooperation documents. Mokhber underlined that Tehran and Damascus have agreed to de-dollarize bilateral trade and use their national currencies instead. He also noted that the Islamic Republic will continue its support for Syria in its fight against terrorism. For his part, Hussein Arnous thanked Iran for standing by the Syrian government and nation in the face of the war waged on the Arab country. Regarding the issue of Gaza, he said Israel will eventually be forced to give in to Palestinians’ demands.
