Organisation of Islamic Co-operation (OIC) strongly condemned a bill by the Israeli occupation government aimed at legitimising colonial settlement areas in the occupied Palestinian territories including Al-Quds Al-Shareef, and stated that these illegitimate measures undertaken by Israel with a view to consolidating its occupation and colonial settlement are null and void by virtue of international law and relevant UN resolutions.
OIC also strongly condemned the Israeli escalation represented by the endorsement of a bill banning the Adhan (call for prayer) in the mosques in the occupied city of Al-Quds and its suburbs, underscoring that these serious measures are part of Israel’s racist practices and continued aggressions on Islamic holy sites.
These practices also constitute a grave violation of the freedom of worship and of the inviolability of sacred sites, and a violation of the international humanitarian law.
OIC warned against the persistence of such Israeli racist practices and aggressions which could fuel religious conflict, extremism and violence in the region.
It also called on the international community, particularly the Security Council, to assume its responsibility and put an end to these repeated serious Israeli violations against sacred places.
