Iran says Israel’s Gaza massacre was pre-planned

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Iran’s envoy to the United Nations has said that Israel’s killing of scores of Palestinian protesters on May 14 was a pre-planned measure.

Gholamali Khoshroo made the remarks on Tuesday while addressing the UN Security Council Open Debate on the Protection of Civilians in Armed Conflict.

He added the Israel committed the crime with complete impunity granted to it by Washington.

“The Israeli army committed yet another war crime in Gaza, killing more than 60 and injuring thousands more unarmed Palestinian civilians in a single day. Given the circumstances, there is no doubt that these vicious attacks and killings were planned and deliberate,” he said.

“These criminal acts took place with total impunity extended to the Israeli regime by the United States in this Council, the same country that later tried to prevent the appointment of a Commission of Inquiry in the Human Rights Council,” he added.
