Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly condemned the Israeli Defense Forces’ crimes against Palestinians, the latest being the assassination of Jerusalem boy Omar Abu Asab, a dangerous escalation in the tempo of Israeli violence and ongoing aggression against the Palestinian people.
The OIC also condemned the policy of medical neglect, which led to the martyrdom of Palestinian prisoner, Sami Amour, in Israeli occupation prison, regarding it a result of medical neglect and inhumane treatment of Palestinian prisoners.
The OIC held the Israeli authorities fully responsible for the repercussions of these crimes that call for accountability and punishment. It also called on the United Nations and relevant international bodies to constitute an investigative committee to look into the circumstances of Sami Amour and Abu Asab’s murder.
Further, the Organization called for intervention to save the lives of the Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike and guarantee their freedom and dignity.
