Brigadier General Seyed Mohammad Baqerzadeh, the head of Iran’s committee in charge of searching for those missing in action, revealed that the Zionist regime is hiding the corpses of those Israelis killed by the Palestinians’ retaliatory attacks on the occupied territories.
“The Zionist regime’s casualties are gradually increasing and the regime has faced a new challenge for hiding the number of its casualties,” Baqerzadeh told FNA on Saturday.
He said that reports from the occupied territories said that the Zionist regime is seeking to transfer the corpses of those killed in the Palestinians’ attacks to unknown places in the deserts near Ashkoul and Tel Aviv and in the back of ambulances which go to the two cities’ hospitals at night.
Noting that the Zionist regime is building new cemeteries in the deserts, Baqerzadeh said that the regime has obliged all the Israeli hospitals to keep the corpses of all those killed in Palestinian attacks for some days to be buried in specified places by the security forces.
His remarks came as the Palestinians launched some 1,250 rockets into Israel by now and the Israeli news sources have strictly been banned by the regime from announcing the number of the Israelis killed in the Palestinians’ missile attacks.
Israel has been pounding the blockaded Gaza for 12 consecutive days, killing at least 322 people and injuring more than 2,270 others.
Four out of every five Palestinians killed during Israel’s ongoing military offensive in Gaza have been civilians, including dozens of women and children, the United Nations said on Monday.
The statistic was disclosed by the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) amid mounting international concern over non-combatant casualties during an operation Israeli officials had claimed was aimed solely at rooting out militants.
