Iran’s president on Tuesday demanded that the UN Security Council “cut off” Israel’s hands with a resolution against Israel over its raid on an aid flotilla bound for the Gaza Strip.

In a speech broadcast live on state TV, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that Israel should be prevented from committing more "crimes," the Jerusalem Post reported.

"I ask the Security Council to keep the crimes of the Zionists on its agenda and to cut off their hands from committing crimes with a strong resolution," Ahmadinejad said during a provincial visit to town of Ilam, some 700 kilometers southwest of Teheran.

He said such a resolution by the Council would secure international confidence in the body and send a message that it doesn't issue "resolutions only against countries the US and its allies want."

Ahmadinejad was referring to the push by the US, four other permanent Security Council members — Russia, China, Britain and France — and Germany for a new set of UN sanctions against Iran over its refusal to stop enriching uranium.

At least nine people were killed when Israeli navy commandos raided the Gaza-bound flotilla Monday.
