Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the USA and its Western allies of being accomplices in Israel's lethal response to Palestinian protesters in Gaza earlier this week, speaking from Tehran on Thursday. «Some people ask why America has not adopted any position on this issue. Is it really that America should react? America is itself an accomplice here. Many Western states are... Еще accomplices. Do you expect them to react,» questioned Khamenei. Over 60 Palestinians have been killed and 2,700 injured in protests since Monday, sparking international outcry. Nakba — meaning catastrophe in Arabic — refers to the 1948 Palestinian exodus, where an estimated 700,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled to make way for the newly created state of Israel.
