Iran reacts to UNSC resolution over ceasefire in Gaza

TEHRAN, Mar. 26 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kan'ani has reacted to the resolution adopted by the United Nations Security Council demanding for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

The senior Iranian diplomat considered the adoption of the resolution after six months of failure a positive but insufficient step.

Kan'ani stressed that the most important step is to take effective action to implement the resolution and stop the attacks of the aggressor Zionist regime against the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, completely lift the cruel blockade of Gaza, and reopen the crossings in order to send international humanitarian aid widely and without discrimination, as well as providing financial aid for the reconstruction of Gaza Strip.

It is expected that the United Nations Security Council would hold the Israeli regime accountable for the crimes committed against the homeless people of Palestine in the past six months and the possibility of its continuation in violation of the resolution, he added.

Israel waged its US-backed war on Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the usurping entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

So far, the Tel Aviv regime has killed at least 32,142 Palestinians, mostly women and children, and injured 74,412 others.

Israel is intentionally starving the people in Gaza by blocking their access to food, a war crime under the Geneva Conventions and the Rome Statute.
