Iran calls on Muslim countries to unite against Israeli genocide in Gaza on occasion of Ramadan

Congratulating the Muslim world on the occasion of Ramadan, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian urged Islamic states to unite against the Israeli regime's ongoing genocidal war against the Gaza Strip on the occasion of the holy fasting month.

“I cordially congratulate the honorable Iranian nation, the entire Muslims of the world, and my counterparts in Muslim countries on the occasion of the emergence of the blessed month of Ramadan,” Amirabdollahian wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, on Monday.

“Gaza’s developments showed that, as the common ideal of [all] Muslims, the issue of Palestine rests at the top of the Muslim world’s [list of] priorities,” he added.

The holy month, he added, can serve as a “premium opportunity” for Muslim countries “to effectively take the initiative, under the aegis of all-out unity and convergence, towards stopping the apartheid Zionist regime’s genocide and war crimes in Gaza.”

The minister, meanwhile, expressed confidence that “the resistance and the Palestinian people are the main victors of this arena.”

Israel launched the war on the Gaza Strip on October 7 after Palestinian resistance groups carried out a surprise retaliatory operation into the occupied territories.

Concomitantly with the war, the regime has been enforcing a near-total siege on Gaza, which has reduced the flow of foodstuffs, medicine, electricity, and water into the Palestinian territory into a trickle. Earlier this month, the United Nations warned that in the absence of any changes in the regime’s ongoing genocidal war, the coastal sliver was on course to experience all-out famine.

So far during the military onslaught, the regime has killed more than 31,000 Gazans, most of them women, children, and adolescents.

Also on Monday, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged the Israeli regime to honor the spirit of the holy month by “silencing the guns.”
