A representative to the Leader says Iran has gathered ‘thousands of documents’ which testify to Israeli atrocities in Palestine.
Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour, the Leader’s representative for Palestinian affairs, said the Iranian Judiciary has gathered abundant evidence of Israeli war crimes in Gaza since Tehran hosted an international conference in support of Palestinians in March.
Mohtashamipour was the Secretary-General of the International Conference of Quds and Support for the Rights of the Palestinian Nation, which condemned Israel’s three-week offensive against Gaza and called for lifting the blockade on the war-torn strip.

He said the evidence included ‘thousands of documents, images and videos depicting Israeli crimes and added, “Each one of them is enough evidence for prosecuting Israeli officials.”

The head of Iran’s Law Enforcement Agency Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam said on Wednesday that Tehran has called on the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) to arrest 25 Israeli officials against whom ‘there is strong evidence that they committed war crimes in Gaza.
Iran has set in motion a criminal case against the Israeli leadership, after an abundant amount of evidence revealed that Tel Aviv had committed mass violations of human rights during its three-week war on Gaza.
