Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani in a telephone conversation with his Omani counterpart Sheikh Khaled bin Halal Al-Maoni on Sunday urged the Muslim countries to increase and accelerate aid and assistance to the people of Gaza.
“The Muslim countries should have closer consultations and cooperation to prevent the (ongoing) attacks on the Palestinians,” Larijani said during the phone conversation.
The Iranian parliament speaker condemned the Zionist regime’s attacks on the defenseless people of Gaza, and said, “The Iranian parliament as the current head of the Inter-Parliamentary Union of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation is hosting the inter-parliamentary union’s troika meeting to study ways for providing political support for the Palestinian nation.”
Sheikh Al-Maoni, for his part, pointed to the Israeli attacks on the people of Gaza, and said, “The Zionist regime’s attacks on Gaza is regrettable and bring a feeling of responsibility to every Muslim.”
In relevant remarks on Thursday, Larijani in separate messages to Chairman of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Abdolvahed Razzi and its Secretary-General Martin Chungung called for an immediate end to the brutal Israeli attacks on the people in Gaza.
In his messages, Larijani warned that continuation of the brutal siege of Gaza would lead to human catastrophe in that region and threatens the regional peace and security.
He called on the OIC Parliamentary Union, the international community and other global organizations to take immediate actions to halt Tel Aviv brutal attacks on Gaza.
Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 13 consecutive days, killing at least 355 people and injuring more than 2,600 others.
According to the UN, 77% of the victims in Gaza are civilians and defenseless people.
