Foreign Minister Dar, Iranian counterpart discuss Gaza atrocities


Islamabad, 6 June 20024 (TDI): Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mohammad Ishaq Dar today received a telephone call from the Acting Foreign Minister of Iran, Ali Bagheri.

During the telephone conversation, they discussed the ongoing situation in Gaza and unabated Israeli atrocities there. At least 36,379 Palestinians have been killed and 82,407 wounded in Israel’s war on Gaza since October 7.

The death toll in Israel from Hamas’s attacks is at least 1,139 with dozens of people still held captive in Gaza.

The toll includes at least 60 deaths over the past 24 hours, a ministry statement said, adding that 82,627 people have been wounded in the Gaza Strip since October 7.

The Deputy Prime Minister reiterated Pakistan’s full support towards Palestine. He ensured Pakistan’s assistance in initiatives aimed at ending the genocide in Gaza and for humanitarian relief to the Palestinian people.

According to the reports, an aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that Israel has accepted a framework deal.  The deal is advanced by US President Joe Biden for ending operations in Gaza. He described it as flawed and in need of much more work.

Far-right Israeli ministers Smortrich and Ben-Gvir threaten to dissolve the government if Prime Minister Netanyahu accepts a ceasefire deal, according to the reports.

Hamas says it regards President Joe Biden’s ceasefire proposal “positively”. It raises hopes of a halt to Israel’s eight-month war that has killed nearly 100 killed in the last 24 hours.

US President Biden says the new proposal for a Gaza truce is “a roadmap to an enduring ceasefire. The release of all hostages”, adding that “it’s time to end this war.”

The main impasse is Israel’s insistence on discussing only temporary pauses in fighting until Hamas is eradicated. Meanwhile, Hamas, showing no intention of yielding, states it will release hostages only if there is a path to a permanent end to the war.
