The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned the decision by the Israeli occupation government to terminate the mission of the Temporary International Presence in the city of Al-Khalil (Hebron) in the State of Palestine, considering this measure as a violation of the Geneva Conventions and the relevant UN resolutions.

The OIC General Secretariat cautioned against the gravity of this Israeli decision, which violates the agreements concluded in this regard and the relevant UN resolutions, especially UN Security Council Resolution 904, adopted in the wake of the horrific massacre at the Ibrahimi Mosque in 1994. It also called on the international community to maintain the International Presence Mission, provide international protection to the Palestinian people and take the necessary measures to put an end to the violations and abuses committed by Israeli settlers and the Israeli occupying forces.
