JEDDAH, Monday, May 30, 2022 (WAFA) - The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly condemned the storming of the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque by thousands of extremist settlers where they performed Talmudic rites and rituals with the support and protection of the Israeli occupation forces.
The OIC vehemently denounced the extremist settlers' organization of the racist and provocative "flags march" in the occupied city of Al-Quds and the barbaric attack on Palestinian citizens. The OIC considered these acts as dangerous escalation, in addition, they constitute a blatant challenge to the feelings of the entire Muslim Ummah, and a flagrant violation of relevant international resolutions and covenants.
The OIC Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha, held Israel, the occupying power, fully responsible for the possible repercussions of these continuous attacks, calling at the same time on the international community, especially the UN Security Council, to move to put an end to these repeated Israeli violations.
He reiterated the OIC's firm and absolute support for the right of the Palestinian people to sovereignty over East Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine, in accordance with relevant United Nations resolutions.
