Iranian President Raises Proposals on Gaza Ceasefire at Doha Summit

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad put forward 7 demands in Qatar's summit including immediate termination of Israeli attacks over Gaza Strip, withdrawal of Zionist forces from the coastal area and lifting the siege over the Palestinian territory.

Sending food and medicine to the impoverished area, dispatching the injured Palestinians to hospitals with advanced equipments, bringing Zionist leaders to court to look into their anti-human crimes, revising any relations with Zionist regime and closing its missions and business bureaus particularly in Islamic and Arab countries were among his proposals.

Ahmadinejad also called for boycotting Israeli goods and making a change in the current political structures specifically in the UN Security Council since according to the President the council pressed by the US and Britain during the war in Lebanon and Gaza proved that it is only a tool for these powers.

He then warned Islamic world and those who sympathized with Palestinians against a major and critical conspiracy, the Iranian students news agency reported.

The recent developments in Gaza reconfirmed that how Zionists take advantage of a rift among Islamic countries and if "we as Islamic and Arab states made a collective decision, there would be no disloyalty in our region" and no country would decline to join other freedom-seekers in condemning Zionist regime and tackling its offensives.

Iran's President then said Israel after its blockade of Gaza Strip and banning the entrance of required goods through air, sea and ground began bombardment on the city and has even targeted hospitals, mosques and residential houses. It has breached all international rules and regulations through employment of phosphorus bombs.

He then expressed sorrow over the absence of some Arab leaders in the summit and said what seems necessary is taking appropriate measures against Israeli crimes in Gaza.

Elsewhere, Ahmadinejad appreciated Qatari Emir's initiative for opening a fund to help Gazans by all countries and expressed optimism it would be opened soon.

Ahmadinejad left Tehran on Friday to take part in the summit in Qatari capital of Doha seeking to discuss ways to help Palestinians.

Israel launched its military operation against the coastal area of Gaza since December 27th during which some 1188 Palestinians were dead and nearly 5220 were injured.

The regime has also ignored the UN Security Council resolution 1860 which has called for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

A large number of people in different countries including Germany, the US, Indonesia, Malaysia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Mexico, Lebanon, England, Syria and Turkey have held demonstrations against Israeli crimes in Gaza Strip.
