Iran’s Foreign Minister accused Israel of committing heinous crimes more severe than those of ISIS. He emphasized that Israel should provide compensation for its criminal acts and declared Palestine as the winner of an unequal field. Adding to the accusations, he claimed that war crimes had been specifically committed against Palestinian women and children in Gaza. The Hamas-run Gaza Health Ministry has claimed that Israeli forces have killed nearly 19,000 Palestinians in the Gaza Strip since October 7. Pope Francis also expressed concerns over the morality of Israel’s actions in the Gaza Strip, emphasizing the impact on unarmed civilians. An Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson said the incident referenced by Francis was still under review, and he had no immediate comment on the pope’s words.
