TEHRAN, Nov. 14 (Xinhua) -- Iranian and Qatari foreign ministers held a phone conversation on Tuesday to exchange views on the diplomatic efforts to stop the "brutal Israeli aggression" against the Gaza Strip, the Iranian Foreign Ministry said.
In the phone call, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani discussed the latest developments in Gaza and ongoing Israeli attacks on the coastal enclave, the ministry said in a statement.
The two foreign ministers also talked about the Israeli bombing of the headquarters of the Qatar Committee for the Reconstruction of Gaza and continued killing of civilians as well as the enclave's highly critical humanitarian situation, the statement said, adding they highlighted the necessity to immediately end Israeli "war crimes" there and send humanitarian aid to Gazans.
Israel has been carrying out attacks on Gaza over the past weeks and has imposed a siege on the enclave to retaliate Hamas attacks on southern Israel on Oct. 7. The conflict has so far led to the deaths of over 11,500 Palestinians in Gaza. On the Israeli side, about 1,200 people lost their lives, the majority of whom were killed in the Hamas attack. ■
