Statement by Iranian Women’s Rights and Civil Society Activists in Support of the Citizens of Gaza and Condemning Violence Targeting Civilians

We, a number of Iranian women’s rights and civil society activists, strongly condemn the violence and murder of innocent civilians resulting from the recent conflict in Gaza. We urge the warring parties to cease their violence and the killing and maiming of innocent civilians and call upon the international community to immediately deploy peacekeeping forces to the region. We call upon the Israelis and Egyptians to allow for humanitarian aid organizations and independent media to enter Gaza, and to allow Palestinian citizens intent on finding security and safety freedom of movement across borders. Additionally, we call on the Israelis to allow entry for independent international human rights reporters in an effort to document the situation of Palestinians and the impact of this ongoing violence and war on the civilian population.

Further, as women’s rights and civil society activists in Iran, we would like to express our solidarity with all citizens affected by this violence. We remind the warring parties and the international community that women and children are often the silent victims of war and call on them to address the needs of this population appropriately. In accordance with the Geneva Conventions and Protocols on the protection of civilians, UN Security Council resolutions on the subject of the occupied Palestinian territories and particularly resolutions 1325 and 1820 on women, peace and security we call on the international community to take immediate steps to address the special needs of women and children, and ensure the presence of women in security and peace negotiations.
