Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei called on Muslim states to cease oil and food exports to Israel in order to stop the bombardment of Gaza, Iranian state media reported.
The top leader also says the West bears blame for the ongoing humanitarian catastrophe in Gaza and has “lost face” in global public opinion.
“People of Gaza have mobilised the public’s conscience by their patience. Look at what’s happening in the world,” Khamenei said.
“In the UK, France, Italy, and the US, many people came out to the street and chanted slogans against Israel and the United States. They have lost their credibility and really there is no remedy for them as they cannot justify Israel’s attack.
“The world of Islam shouldn’t forget in the case of Gaza it was the US, France, and the UK that stood against the oppressed people of Gaza, it wasn’t just the Zionist regime.”
At least 8,525 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli attacks in Gaza since October 7
