JEDDAH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has condemned the actions of extremist Israeli settlers under the Israeli occupation forces’ protection in storming Al-Aqsa Mosque, performing Talmudic prayers in its courtyards and raising the Israeli flag inside it, considering this a flagrant violation of international law and an infringement on the sanctity of the mosque.

The organization stated that it holds Israel responsible for the continuation of these violations, which constitute a blatant attack on Muslims and fuel the violence and tension that threaten international security and stability.

The OIC called on the international community, namely the UN Security Council, to assume its responsibilities in obligating Israel, the occupying force, to stop its aggression against the Palestinian people and their Islamic and Christian lands and holy sites.

Recently in the organization’s Eid Al-Fitr message, OIC Secretary-General Hissein Brahim Taha also expressed solidarity with the Rohingya refugees and other Muslims in various parts of the world undergoing crises, including Lake Chad Basin, Jammu and Kashmir, whose Eid celebrations have been dampened by their difficult conditions.
