At Saudi Arabia’s Request, OIC to Hold Emergency Ministerial Meeting on Palestine Sunday

OIC foreign ministers' meeting to discuss Israeli threats

At the request of Saudi Arabia, President of the Islamic Summit, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will hold, next Sunday, a virtual emergency ministerial meeting of the Organization’s Executive Committee to discuss the Israeli attacks in the Palestinian Territory, especially in Al-Quds Al-Sharif, and the acts of violence being committed by Israel in the vicinity of Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israel bombarded Gaza with artillery and air strikes on Friday in response to a new barrage of rocket fire from the Hamas-run enclave, but stopped short of a ground offensive in the conflict that has now claimed more than 100 Palestinian lives.
