OIC condemns home demolition in Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood

Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned the demolition of homes and facilities carried out by the Israeli occupation forces in Al-Bustan area of Silwan neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem.

In a statement on Tuesday, the General Secretariat considered the Israeli move an extension of the process of forced displacement of Jerusalem citizens in favor of Judaization projects and colonial settlement schemes with the aim of changing the demographic, geographic and legal reality of the Holy City.

The OIC stressed that these actions are a violation of international law, calling on the international community to assume its responsibilities to provide international protection for the Palestinian people, end the occupation and achieve a just and lasting peace in accordance with the relevant UN resolutions and the Arab Peace Initiative based on the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital.
