“The Zionist Israeli regime is a human killing machine by nature taking the lives of #Palestinians indiscriminately. 20-year-old Rouzan al-Najjar was a Gazan volunteer first aid responder who was shot & killed in 2018. The merciless Israeli forces shot her deliberately,” the ministry said in a tweet on Friday on the occasion of the International Quds Day.
Al-Najjar, a volunteer with the Gaza Health Ministry, was fatally shot in the chest in 2018 while treating injured Gaza protesters in a medical staff uniform.
At the time, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned Israel's killing of the young paramedic as another stain of shame for the regime.
“In a week when Israeli regime airs an absurd message to Iranians while its US patrons veto a resolution condemning its use of deadly force against unarmed protestors, its snipers murder a Palestinian medic tending to the wounded. Shame upon shame,” he tweeted on June 2, 2018.
