Dr. Yunis Al Khatib,                                                                                 

President of the Palestine Red Crescent Society

Dear Mr. President,

We have learnt with great sorrow that following to the recent fatal clashes in Gaza strip, Razan Ashraf Alnajjar, a 21 years volunteer nurse has been shot by Israeli military force while trying to provide health care and medical services to the civilian.  

The Iranian Red Crescent expresses its deep condolences to you and all volunteers of the PRCS who put their life in danger to assist the injured people and the sympathy to the family of the martyr Razan Ashraf.   

Targeting the health and medical personnel is considered as the violation of treaty and customary International Humanitarian Law rules and principles while protecting the health cares and medical personnel in armed conflict. 

This criminality, leads to increase the deep concern on continous violation of IHL and IHRL by occupying regime and also endangers the fight against impunity in International Community.

Therefore, Iranian National Committee of IHL and Iranian Red Crescent Society strongly condemn these cruelties and request the international community to take appropriate and immediate measures to stop such violations.

As we all aware, consisting and continuing on committing such criminal acts could be a barrier on fighting against impunity.
