International condemnation of Israeli aggression on Gaza
Syria, Iran, Algeria, and Turkey condemn the Israeli occupation aggression against Gaza and call on the international community to hold "Israel" accountable for its crimes.
Following the aggression that the Israeli occupation launched against the Gaza Strip, which left 13 Palestinian martyrs and many injured, a number of countries rushed to condemn the brutal Israeli crime.
Syria expressed its deepest condolences to the families of Palestinians who were martyred in the Israeli aggression.
In a statement, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said, "Syria extends its deepest condolences to the families of the Palestinians who were martyred in the aggression and crime committed by Israeli occupation forces in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday at dawn."
Syria affirms its support for the Palestinian people and their just cause, the ministry stressed, adding that such criminal behavior will only increase the people's adherence to this position and will only increase the determination of the steadfast Palestinian people to pursue their struggle until they realize their full rights.
"Words of condemnation and denunciation are no longer enough. What is required now is to take real measures to put an end to these Israeli massacres against the Palestinian people, and to hold accountable the Israeli officials who are trying to cover up their internal crises," the Syrian Foreign Ministry statement underlined.
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said that the Israeli occupation's act of terrorism on the eve of Nakba Day is a sign of "Israel's" helplessness and weakness against the heroic Resistance of the Palestinian youth in the occupied West Bank and Al-Quds.
Kanaani considered that the recent Israeli aggression against Gaza was aimed at diverting public opinion from the extremely unstable and critical internal situation of the Israeli occupation.
The Iranian spokesperson pointed out that the silence and inaction of international organizations and Western countries toward the Israeli occupation's inhumane actions allowed "Israel" to pursue its criminal acts.
The official underlined that the so-called advocates of human rights will go down in history as dispecable for failing to oppose Israeli crimes.
Elsewhere, Kanaani stressed the need for an immediate, effective, and coordinated measure to stop the Israeli occupation crime machine.

In the same context, Algeria strongly condemned the Israeli aggression and expressed its deep concern over the successive brutal aggressions and the dangerous escalation of the Israeli occupation forces against the Palestinian people in flagrant violation of all international laws and norms.
In a statement, Algeria renewed its full and permanent solidarity with the Palestinian people, and called on the international community, especially the UN Security Council, to intervene urgently to stop "Israel's" repeated and systematic attacks and to impose respect for the rights of the Palestinian people, foremost of which is their right to establish their independent state with Al-Quds as its capital.
Similarly, the Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the Israeli aggression on Gaza, stressing that "such despicable acts are in no way acceptable."
"We expect these attacks to be ended immediately, without further loss of life and without causing a new spiral of conflict in the region," the Turkish Foreign Ministry stated.
