07 : 38 PM - 14/06/2018
Jeddah, June 14 (BNA): The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) welcomed the resolution adopted during an emergency meeting of the UN General Assembly convened upon the request from the Arab and Islamic groups at the UN headquarters.




The OIC hailed the overwhelming support for this resolution as sending a strong message of worldwide backing of the rights of the Palestinian people, describing it as a sound footing on which to establish justice and accountability and ensure respect for international humanitarian law and relevant international resolutions.
OIC Secretary General Dr. Yousef Al-Othaimeen commended the principled stance of the clear majority of world countries that have stood in support for international law, showing commitment to maximize chances for peace and stability to come true in the region.
“The urge for international protection to the Palestinian people is all the more important as it comes amid continued and mounting Israeli assault and aggression in all of the occupied Palestinian territory, especially in the Gaza Strip”, he added.
