(MENAFN) Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanaani, has strongly condemned the tragic killing of a Palestinian infant in the occupied West Bank, emphasizing the complicity of the United States due to its unwavering support for the Israeli regime. In a tweet, Kanaani expressed his outrage following the death of two-and-a-half-year-old Mohammad Haytham Tamimi, who succumbed to critical wounds inflicted by Israeli soldiers a few days earlier.
Kanaani denounced the Israeli regime's continuous acts of cruelty, particularly the killing of innocent Palestinian children. He highlighted the tragic case of Mohammad Haytham Tamimi, stating that he is the 28th Palestinian child to lose their life at the hands of the child-killing Israeli regime. Moreover, Kanaani pointed out that the international sponsors of the Israeli regime also bear responsibility for these daily crimes, emphasizing the legal and international implications of their support.
The incident occurred when Mohammad and his father, Haytam Tamimi, were sitting in their parked car outside their home in the village of Nabi Salah, near Ramallah. Israeli forces fired shots at them, resulting in both the child and his father sustaining severe injuries. Mohammad suffered critical head injuries, while his father was wounded in the chest. They were immediately rushed to a hospital, where Mohammad fought for his life until he tragically passed away on Monday morning.
The condemnation by Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman reflects the deep concern and anger felt by many around the world over the ongoing violence and loss of innocent lives in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The statement highlights the need for accountability and justice in the face of such acts, as well as the urgency for a peaceful resolution to the long-standing conflict.
