Iran’s envoy to the United Nations says all those who commit crimes against children in armed conflicts must be brought to justice.
Gholamali Khoshroo said Israel’s killing of Palestinian children amounts to war crimes and crimes against humanity. While condemning the Israeli brutality, Khoshroo said the deliberate killing of children is a war tactic which is also pursued by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Daesh. He added that these countries kill children to pressure their enemies. The Iranian diplomat noted that the most effective way to protect children against such crimes is to prevent or curb armed conflicts.
