Iran on Friday called on the United Nations to condemn Israel's "criminal and aggressive acts against the Gaza Strip", the Islamic Republic's Press TV website reported.

"As the rotating president of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Islamic Republic of Iran expects all international institutions affiliated to the United Nations to adhere to their responsibilities towards the Palestinian nation,” Press TV quoted Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying.

Mehmanparast's comments came following the death of six Palestinians by two IDF strikes on Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The IAF said it hit a terror cell preparing to launch rockets in southern Israel in Wednesday's attack. On Thursday, the IDF attacked a terrorist cell attempting to place a bomb on the Gaza border
