Ayatollah Sistani Calls on the World to Stand up to ‘Brutality’ in Gaza

Iraq’s Top Shia Cleric Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani has called on world countries to stand up against the “terrible Brutality” by the Zionist regime against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and prevent further suffering of the innocent people in besieged territory.

A translation of this letter can be found below:

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Statement Issued by the Office of His Eminence al-Sayyid al-Sistani regarding the Continuous Bombing throughout the Gaza Strip 

During these days, the Gaza Strip is being subjected to continuous bombing and intense attacks, which are unparalleled and have currently resulted in the death and injury of more than six thousand innocent civilians,  the displacement of large numbers of people from their homes, and the destruction of vast residential areas. The extent of the bombing, which is targeting many areas, has left no safe place for people to shelter.

At the same time, the occupying army is imposing a stifling siege on the Gaza Strip, which most recently includes water, food, medicine, and other necessities of life, with the objective of causing the greatest harm to people who have no recourse and are powerless, as if its intent is to take revenge on them and compensate for its resounding loss and great failure in recent confrontations.

This is happening in full view of the whole world without any deterrent or prohibition. Rather, there are those who support these criminal acts and justify them under the pretext of self-defense!

The entire world is called upon to stand up against this terrible brutality and to stop the occupying forces from continuing to carry out their plans to cause further harm to the oppressed Palestinian people.

Ending the tragedy of the respected people of Palestine, which has persisted for seven decades, by granting them their legitimate rights and removing the occupation from their usurped lands is the only way to bring security and peace to this region. Without this, resistance to the aggressors and the cycle of violence will continue to claim more innocent lives. Indeed, there is no recourse nor strength except in Allah Almighty.
