Speaker vows ”crushing” Iranian response to any Israeli attack
Iran's Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday that the "Zionist regime" is currently faced with the wave of world’s awakening and vigilant nations. According to IRNA, he made the remarks while addressing the OIC prosecutors conference which opened in Tehran earlier in the day to prepare an indictment against Israeli leaders for the crimes against humanity and war crimes in Gaza during December 2008-January 2009 war.
Over 200 senior judicial officials from member states of the Organization of the Islamic Conference are attending the two-day meeting to review effective judicial and legal avenues against war crimes and genocide in the Gaza Strip carried by Israel.
Elsewhere in his address, Larijani reiterated, “No one in the world has the right to speak with Iran loudly.” Those interested to do so, should refer to the history in order to see the consequences of such a move, he added.
He noted that in case of attacking the Islamic Iran, the Zionist regime will face a crushing response by the Iranian nation.
The Iranian official urged Washington to change its approach towards oppressed nations including those of Palestine and Iraq, saying the US administration should apologize to the Iraqi nation for its invasion and crimes it perpetrated there and leave that country soon. He voiced hope that the ongoing conference would take a step towards restoration of rights of the brave and oppressed Palestinian nation.
Larijani further condemned the Israeli atrocities in the Palestinian territories in the past few decades and denounced blind support of the US administration for the Israeli crimes against defenseless people. He said imprisonment of innocent people, state terrorism, genocide, racist approach and making use of weapons of mass destruction are among crimes being committed by the Tel Aviv regime which should be subject to heavy punishment.
