OIC Condemns Israeli Occupation’s Decision To Build 1000 Settlement Units In Al-Quds

Date: 28/10/2014

" التعاون الإسلامي" تدين قرار الاحتلال الإسرائيلي بناء 1000 وحدة استيطانية في القدس

The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Iyad Ameen Madani, condemned the Israeli authorities’ decision ratifying the construction of 1000 settlement units in the occupied Al-Quds. He stressed that the continuation of the settlement expansion policy constituted flagrant violation of international law and international legitimacy resolutions.

The Secretary General also condemned in the strongest terms the ongoing attacks by the Israeli occupation forces and settler groups on the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque and the worshippers in the Mosque’s courtyard. He condemned the attempts to make futile laws to divide the Mosque temporally and spatially, and cautioned against the consequences of the occupation’s settlement and racist practices on the security and stability of the entire region.

Madani appealed to the Security Council to discharge the functions for which it was established. He called upon the United States, the mediator, to mediate effectively and on the quartet to take action. He also called upon the international community and civil society institutions not to be silent witnesses to the Israeli violations but to take action to stop Israel’s ongoing violation against what remains of Palestinian territories, against Palestinian legitimate rights and humanity and respect freedom of worship and sanctity of places of worship.
