Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi’s wife, Jamileh Alamolhoda, has vehemently condemned Israel’s crimes against Palestinian women and children in the besieged Gaza Strip, describing them as a cause of shame for the entire world.
Alamolhoda made the comment in a letter to French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife, Brigitte Marie-Claude Macron, on Sunday.
“As humans, we must be ashamed of what is going on in these bitter days in a small and beautiful part of our common planet Earth,” Alamolhoda said in her letter.
“As a powerful and influential lady in Europe, which you consider the cradle of civilization, you are expected to take befitting measures to provide help to Gaza’s oppressed women and defenseless children,” the letter added.
The Israeli regime has been waging a campaign of unprecedented bombardment against Gaza since October 7, when the Palestinian territory’s resistance groups launched Operation al-Aqsa Storm in the occupied territories in response to the regime’s intensified crimes against Palestinians.
The death toll from Israel’s genocidal attacks has exceeded 9,700, while more than 26,000 people, mostly women, children and the elderly, have been wounded.
