Iran on Monday called on the UN Security Council and the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to take swift punitive action against Israel for attacking Gaza aid convoy, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Early Monday morning, Israeli forces launched an attack on the aid fleet en route to the besieged Gaza Strip, killing at least 19 people and leaving scores injured, according to Israel's Channel 10 television.

Iran's Foreign Ministry condemned the Israeli raid and said " the incident once again revealed the criminal and war-mongering nature of the Zionist regime," IRNA quoted a statement issued by Foreign Ministry as saying.

The Zionist regime's attack on ships and their crew recalls acts of sea piracy in the past centuries, which are clear example of maritime terrorism, said the statement.

It is now time for the international community to take strong actions against the constant crimes of the aggressive and occupying regime, the statement added.
