A representative of the Iranian Jewish Community in the Iranian Parliament Siamak Mareh Sedgh condemned the Jerusalem government for firing at Nakba Day protesters along the border in Syria, Lebanon, and Gaza, Iranian news channel IRNA reported Monday. Clashes throughout the various sites resulted in the deaths of at least 12 people.

Speaking to IRNA, Sedgh said that the IDF's behavior proved the "brutal manner of the occupying regime."

According to the IRNA, Sedgh expressed sympathy with the Palestinian nation on behalf of the 25,000 strong Jewish minority.
