JEDDAH, (PIC)– The Secretary-General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, has called for providing international protection for the Palestinian people in face of the Israeli aggressions.

He said in a press release on Sunday that the world powers should intervene to halt the Israeli aggression on the unarmed Palestinian people and prosecute those who committed war crimes against them.

Ihsanoglu strongly denounced the brutal Israeli attacks on Gaza Strip that left tens of casualties in violation of international laws and norms.

He noted that the aggression coincided with the ongoing Judaization, settlement activity, arrests, confiscation of land, and demolition of Palestinian homes in the West Bank and Jerusalem.

For its part, Turkey denounced the exaggerated and disproportionate operations of the Israeli army against the the Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

The Turkish foreign ministry urged Israel to end the hostility and to act wisely and moderately, adding that the region should not enter a new cycle of violence.



“We ask, how many more dead corpses of Palestinian children and women does the international community need to see in order to act?”
