TEHRAN (Iran News) – Every year and on last Friday of month of Ramadan, people especially Muslims across the world mark International Quds Day that was initiated by the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran the late Imam Khomeini in 1979 to express support for the Palestinians and oppose Zionism and Israel. Since then, the world has been awakened against the Zionists and reacted differently towards the Zionists’ atrocities by holding protest rallies or even approving resolutions and issuing statements against the occupier regime of Israel but they have not been enough to stop those atrocities and the world needs to take a serious measure against it.
In recent years, Israeli regime has ramped up its pressure on Palestinians either through military attacks, occupying lands or closing all economic channels of the Palestinians in order to make them give in continuing their intifada against the occupier regime.
Last week the Palestinian Foreign Ministry asked the International Criminal Court (ICC) to investigate the forced relocation of Palestinians from Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood in Jerusalem al-Quds.
The ministry sent a letter pertaining to Israel’s treatment of Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah to the ICC on Tuesday.
Ibrahim Melhem, a spokesman for the Palestinian Authority, said in a post on Facebook that the threat from the Israeli regime to seize Palestinian homes in the neighborhood violates international law.
In a letter sent to the chief prosecutor of the ICC, Fatou Bensouda, the ministry urged the prominent lawyer to include the issue at hand in the court’s investigation into Israeli war crimes against Palestinians.
The ICC opened the formal investigation in March.
“The forcible transfer of population and associated war crimes and crimes against humanity fall within the Rome Statute [of the International Criminal Court],” the official said.
In a statement on Sunday, Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, held the Israeli regime responsible for harming the inhabitants of Sheikh Jarrah.
Of course this is just a simple sign of the Israeli atrocities against the Palestinians. Palestinians have tried to show the Zionists’ savage behavior but it needs a strong international action against this brutal regime.
The Zionists’ fear of Palestinians’ intifada is still alive especially now that Iran as a regional power supporting them in their fight against Israel. Some mischiefs by Israel against Iran were not left unanswered in recent days in order to show this occupier regime that Iran is not an easy prey to be devoured and they should wait for any retaliatory response from Iran or the resistance front.
The Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) said on Wednesday that the recent string of monumental security disasters right inside the occupied territories shows the Israeli regime’s sheer vulnerability.
“Israel’s security bubble has burst,” Major General Hossein Salami told a televised interview.
He said the image that the regime had portrayed of itself through psychological operation has been destroyed, adding, “Today, you can see the [real] face of the Zionist regime in its actual proportions.”
‘Israel’s security, political, social disintegration’
So these remarks can encourage Palestinians to continue their struggle against Israel as they have the support of their brotherly country, Iran.
On Wednesday Syria’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Bassam Sabbagh said the Israeli regime’s repeated attacks against his country’s territory, sovereignty and independence threaten regional stability as well as international peace and security.
The diplomat said the two Israeli assaults are in flagrant violation of the international law, the UN Charter, Security Council Resolution 350 (1974) and the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria.
So one can see the Israeli atrocities are not just limited to the Palestinians as they carry out attacks on any country resisting against their land devouring habit. Unfortunately, major world powers support this regime and it emboldens Israel to continue this type of behavior, and one day the world should be united against these atrocities and put an end to it to save the Palestinians who are the victims of this occupier and savage regime which has disrupted peace and security in the region and even in the world.
International Quds Day rallies can help the world to take a serious action against Israel and this day should not be forgotten by Muslim countries as a day for showing their solidarity with the Palestinians who are fighting to save their lands and identities which are being overshadowed by the Israeli military force and the West.
So Muslims should always remain united on the Quds Day to show the world that Palestine needs to be saved from the claws of Israel and Zionists should be responded strongly.
