Grand Ayatollah of Iraq Calls on All Muslims to Support Palestinians

In a statement released today, Grand Ayatollah Sistani of Iraq supported the Palestinian resistance. He is followed by most of the world’s over 200 million Shia Muslims.

“During these days, the Gaza Strip is being subjected to continuous bombing and intense attacks that are rare, and which have resulted in the death and injury of more than six thousand innocent civilians, and caused the displacement of large numbers of them from their homes, and the destruction of large residential areas. The bombing targets various areas until there is no longer a safe place for people to shelter.

At the same time, the occupation army imposes a stifling siege on the Gaza Strip, which has recently included water, food, medicine, and other necessities of life, causing the greatest harm to the people who are helpless, as if it wants to take revenge on them and compensate for its resounding loss and great failure in the recent confrontations.

This is happening in full view of the whole world, and there is no deterrent or hindrance. Rather, there are those who support these criminal acts and justify them under the pretext of self-defense!

The whole world is called upon to stand up to this terrible brutality and prevent the occupation forces from continuing to implement their plans to cause further harm to the oppressed Palestinian people.

Ending the tragedy of these honorable people – which has been going on for seven decades – by granting them their legitimate rights and removing the occupation from their usurped lands is the only way to bring security and peace to this region. Without that, resistance to the aggressors will continue and the cycle of violence will continue to claim more innocent lives.”
