Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly condemned the incursion by the extremist Israeli minister Ben-Gvir into the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound with the protection of the Israeli defense forces. This is part of attempts by Israel, the occupying power, to alter the existing historical and legal status of in the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque. The General Secretariat viewed this as a provocation against Muslims’ sentiments and a flagrant violation of relevant international resolutions.
The OIC holds the Israeli defense forces fully responsible for the repercussions of the continued daily Israeli aggression against Al-Quds, including its people and holy sites. The OIC called on the international community to assume its responsibility towards stopping these Israeli violations, which can trigger religious conflict, extremism and instability in the region.
