Israel and Saudi Arabia have long been violating human rights in the Middle East with impunity because they are assured of strong backing from the United States, Iran's ambassador to the United Nations said on Tuesday.  
In a statement during an open debate of the Security Council on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, Gholamali Khoshroo said, "Israeli and Saudi regimes continue their attacks on civilians while the US role, as a permanent member of the council, is to attack the truth by supporting them and providing them with impunity." 
The Iranian government condemns all attacks that have taken place against civilians, including medical and humanitarian staff, throughout the world, especially in Palestine, Afghanistan, Yemen and Syria, he noted, according to a text of his speech carried by IRNA.  
"The new round of repression and the massacre of unarmed Palestinian civilians in Gaza, including women and children, is the latest in an old pattern followed by the Israeli regime over the past seven decades."
