The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned the illegal demolition by Israel, the occupying Power, of dozens of houses in Wadi Al-Hummus in the town of Sur Baher in Al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Dr. Yousef bin Ahmed Al-Othaimeen, the OIC Secretary-General, stressed that this serious escalation is part of the incessant attempts by the Israeli occupation to change the legal status and demographic structure of the city of Al-Quds and displace the Palestinian citizens by force from their lands and properties. Al-Othaimeen called for holding those responsible for these acts accountable.

The OIC Secretary General also called on the international community to compel Israel to desist from its illegal practices and put an end to all its actions that violate the inalienable rights of the Palestinians.
