According to IRIB, the Jews condemned the criminal acts of the Zionist regime.

Jewish school students were also present in the gathering, holding placards which read "No to war," and "We as Iranian Jewish children condemn the crimes of the occupying regime of Israel against the Gaza children."

They also held a banner which carried wishes of peace for the Gaza children in three languages of Persian, English and Hebrew.

The Jewish protestors issued a resolution at the end of the gathering which slammed the Israeli army for violating human rights conventions through their killings of women and children in Gaza.

"Iran's Jewish community is regretful over the incidents and declares that the acts are irrelevant to Judaism and runs counter to the teachings of Moses," the resolution said.

The resolution also called on the international bodies to immediately intervene to stop the crimes of the Zionist regime and help the wounded.
