Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says if Israeli crimes against Palestinians in Gaza continue, no one can stop Muslims and resistance forces.
Speaking in a meeting with a group of Iranian elites and top scientific talents on Tuesday, Ayatollah Khamenei said that Muslim nations are angry at the Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip.
“If these crimes continue, the Muslims and the resistance forces will become impatient, [and] no one would be able to stop them,” he said.
“This is a fact that exists. Of course, whatever the Zionist regime does, it will not be able to make up for the scandalous failure it suffered.”
The Leader also said that what is in front of the eyes of the whole world in Palestine is the Israeli regime’s crime of genocide.
Claims by some countries that the Palestinians have killed civilians are false as all those living in settlements across the occupied territories are armed, he asserted.
“Now let’s suppose that they are civilians. How many civilians were killed? This occupying regime is killing a hundred times more civilians; women, children, the elderly and youth. The armed forces are not living in Gaza buildings. They are in their own place. They (the Israelis) know it too. These are all people. They choose crowded sites and hit them… The occupying government of the Zionist regime must be put on trial today.”
Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that numerous pieces of information suggest that the US is formulating the current policy within the Zionist regime.
“The Americans should consider their responsibility [regarding Israeli crimes in Gaza]… The bombings must stop immediately,” he added.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the Leader urged scholars and scientists not to remain indifferent towards the situation in Gaza.
“Today, in the case of Gaza, all of us have the responsibility to react. We must show a reaction. Some people are hungry, some are under bombardment, and some are being martyred in hundreds. A scholar, a university, or a seminary scholar must try to recognize the truth and stand by it. Looking indifferently [at issues] is not permissible for scholars and scientists,” Ayatollah Khamenei noted.
