The ambassador to the UN condemned the rising wave of Israeli violence against Palestinians, calling on the international community to stop the Zionist regime’s aggression and occupation of Palestinian territories.

Speaking at a meeting of the UN Security Council on Thursday, Gholam Ali Khoshroo held Israel responsible for the ongoing tensions in Palestine, saying the Non-Aligned Movement believes “the time has come for ending the occupation [of Palestinian lands] by Zionists,” Press TV reported.

The Iranian envoy, whose country currently holds the rotating presidency of the NAM, denounced Tel Aviv as the source of “instability, despair and rage in the Middle East,” adding that Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands and the failure to punish the regime for its crimes against the oppressed nation pose a “threat to world peace.”
