Iran called for Israeli leaders to be "brought to justice" over the recent escalation in the Gaza Strip, saying that they committed "war crimes" and "state terrorism," Tehran's Foreign Ministry stated.

"Targeted killings account for gross violation of international law and an ordinary practice Israel does to assassinate Palestinian combatants," the Iranian Foreign Ministry stated. "Though the Israeli war crimes against Palestinian civilians are not a new practice, it reflects the terrorist nature of the Tel Aviv regime and its ignorance of the international law," Tehran said.

Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip have fired over 130 rockets into Israel after the IAF foiled a major terror attack, killing the secretary general of the Popular Resistance Committees, Zuhair Qaisi in a bombing on Friday.
