The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned the Israeli aggression against Palestinian civilians, which led to the death of more than 52 martyrs and the injury of about 2,000 Palestinian citizens during their participation in peaceful protests on the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, expressing their rejection of the United States’ decision to transfer its embassy to occupied Quds.

The Secretary-General of the Organization, Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen, called on Israel, the occupying Power, to assume full responsibility for the consequences of these crimes and called on the international community, particularly the Security Council, to intervene in order to put immediately an end to this aggression.

HE Dr. Othaimeen stressed the need for the international community to play its role towards finding a political solution to the Palestinian cause in accordance with international law, international legitimacy resolutions and the Arab peace initiative.
