Lar­i­jani Raps U.S. At­tempts to Dis­credit Int’l Bod­ies

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN – Ma­jlis Speaker Ali Lar­i­jani strongly con­demned the re­lo­ca­tion of the U.S. em­bassy from Tel Aviv to Quds (Jerusalem) and said Washington is seek­ing to dis­credit in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­clud­ing the United Na­tions.

Speak­ing at an open ses­sion of the par­lia­ment on Tues­day, Lar­i­jani strongly con­demned Is­rael for the mas­sacre of Pales­tini­ans who protested at the U.S. Em­bassy move on Mon­day and said the Zion­ist regime com­mit­ted a “mas­sive crime” by killing over 50 peo­ple and in­jur­ing more than 2,000 oth­ers.

He fur­ther em­pha­sized that Mon­day’s killings would be “a big blem­ish on” the his­tory of the Zion­ist regime and the U.S. gov­ern­ment.

The mas­sacre was con­cur­rent with two other is­sues: first, the Nakba Day, a day on which sev­eral decades ago, world pow­ers helped the Zionists to ex­pel Pales­tini­ans from their moth­er­land, and sec­ond, the US move to re­lo­cate its em­bassy to Quds, the par­lia­ment speaker noted.

“Ap­par­ently, the Amer­i­cans have de­cided since many years ago to dis­credit in­ter­na­tional in­sti­tu­tions,” Lar­i­jani said, adding that Washington is seek­ing to abol­ish the United Na­tions.

The Gaza Health Min­istry said about 60 Pales­tinian were killed and more than 2,700 oth­ers in­jured Mon­day, in­clud­ing 1,360 by live fire. Of the wounded, 130 are in se­ri­ous or crit­i­cal con­di­tion.

It was the dead­li­est day in Gaza since a 2014 cross-bor­der war.
