Palestine Crisis Rooted in Israeli Occupation

The foreign ministry has condemned the occupation of the Palestinian territories and the ongoing organized and inhumane crimes against the Palestinian people by the Zionist regime and described those actions as the root cause of one of the lengthiest crises in the world.
It said “ending occupation” and recognizing the Palestinians’ definite and inviolable right to decide their own destiny are the only ways to put an end to the great “human tragedy” in Palestine.
In an statement issued on Saturday on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, the foreign ministry said the actions of the Israeli regime are “not only the root of other problems and crises in the Middle East and the Muslim world,” but also they are “one of the main sources of insecurity and instability” across the globe, IRNA reported.  
In 1977, the UN General Assembly called for the annual observance of November 29 as the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Since then the occasion has been marked every year across the globe.
The statement also reiterated that Iran will continue to lend support to the oppressed Palestinian people and called on the international community to work for the resolution of the crisis in Palestine.  It also said, “The continuation of such aggressive policies by Israel would further contribute to promoting extremism and creating bigger crisis in the region and the world.”
The ministry also urged Islamic countries and the world community to take immediate measures to secure an unconditional end to “the cruel Israeli siege” of the Gaza Strip. The tiny strip of land has been under crippling siege since 2007.
