Esmail Kowsari, Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Committee member, said that the reason behind the Israeli Pillar of Defense operation in the Gaza strip is to boost Israeli morale. “The morale and spirit of Israel’s military commanders was down after receiving consequent blows from Hezbollah and the people of Gaza… Now the Zionist regime (Israel) wants to boost its morale through such offensives and attacks, but it should know that the situation is not like in the past, and the Palestinian people will respond.” The Foreign Ministry Spokesman condemned the assaults and blasted the international community, especially human rights organizations, for staying silent about the Israeli atrocities against the Palestinians. He added that Israel wants to hide its domestic problems by diverting world public opinion through such actions.
