Jeddah (UNA-OIC) – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) reaffirmed its absolute support for the Palestinian people and their just struggle to regain their legitimate national rights.
The OIC said the anniversary of Palestinian Land Day, observed yearly on March 30, embodies a station for renewing solidarity with the Palestinian people in defending their land, history, sanctities and national identity.
The OIC emphasized the importance of working to achieve peace in accordance with the resolutions of the United Nations and the Arab Peace Initiative based on the vision of a two-state solution and the establishment of the State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital.
On Tuesday, Palestinians commemorated the 45th anniversary of Land Day with rallies and marches planned in several Arab towns inside Israel and the occupied territories. The occasion marks the killing of six Palestinians and injury of many others by Israeli forces during mass protests in 1976 against the Israeli government’s appropriation of thousands of dunums of Palestinian lands.
