JEDDAH: The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned the successive massacres and crimes committed by the Israeli occupation against the innocent Palestinian people. The latest of these atrocities was the heinous massacre at UNRWA-affiliated Tal al-Zaatar and al-Fakhoura schools in the northern Gaza Strip, resulting in the tragic loss of hundreds of lives, including displaced children and women, OIC said in a statement on Sunday.
In a statement, the OIC decried the Israeli occupation’s actions, particularly the attack on the Al-Shifa Medical Complex, where citizens, the sick, wounded, and medical staff were forcibly evacuated, and the facility was turned into a closed military barracks. The OIC characterized these acts as part of an ongoing pattern of ethnic cleansing and genocide perpetrated by the Israeli occupation army against the Palestinian people in Gaza.
