Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned Israel as a “brutal and rogue apartheid regime” for the killing of defenseless Palestinians in Gaza and called on the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to punish the regime and protect the lives of Palestinians. 
“In the light of the massacre in Gaza, the international community has the right to demand an end to the impunity of this brutal and rogue apartheid regime,” Zarif said, addressing an emergency meeting of the OIC about Palestine in Istanbul on Friday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
“It is imperative for our Organization to reinforce the call for bringing the perpetrators to justice,” he said, adding, “We need to take concrete action in the United Nations system, including by pushing for a transparent and independent international inquiry and asking for providing international protection for the Palestinians as envisaged in international humanitarian law.”
