OIC calls emergency meeting of members on 16th May on Israel conflict

Israel-Palestine conflict

O Hindus, realise that 57 Islamic nations have come out in support of a Muslim-majority Palestine, while there is no single country in the world that will assist you during the crisis period. It is high time to shed aside caste, post, party politics and unite as Hindus to establish a Hindu Rashtra !

Tel Aviv (Israel) – Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an organisation of 57 Muslim countries, has called an emergency meeting of the Foreign Ministers of its member countries on 16th May to discuss the Israel-Palestine conflict. The OIC informed about this in a tweet.

  1. A Foreign Ministerial level meeting of organisation’s working Committee is called on Saudi Arabia’s request. The meeting will focus on the violence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and the Israeli attack on the Palestinian territories.
  2. Turkey and Pakistan are increasingly active in uniting Islamic countries against Israel’s attack on Palestine. “Muslim countries must unite against Israel and support Hamas’ campaign in Gaza Strip. The Muslim community should take a clear stand against Israel”, Turkey said.
  3. While Islamic countries are uniting against Israel, Israel’s aerial attack on Palestine has claimed 119 lives so far. 8 people were killed in Israel.
  4. According to the UN, more than 200 buildings in Gaza have been destroyed. Hundreds have taken refuge in schools in the northern Gaza Strip. Paramilitary forces have been deployed in Israel’s areas where Jewish and Arab communities coexist. Riots are taking place in such areas.
  5.  “We have 160 fighter jets and infantry at standby. The tanks have hit some special targets, but we haven’t yet entered the Gaza Strip”, said Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, spokesman of Israeli army. PM Benjamin Netanyahu said, “The campaign will take some time to begin. Hamas will be taught a good lesson this time”.
