In recent developments, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has taken a firm stance regarding the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict. Denouncing the Israeli military aggression against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, the OIC considers it a flagrant violation of international and humanitarian law, labeling it a war crime.

As a result, they have called upon the international community to urgently intervene and pressure Israel to cease its attacks on the Palestinian people immediately. Additionally, the OIC has emphasized the need to establish humanitarian corridors to facilitate the entry of crucial supplies, including medicines, food, and other essential items into the Gaza Strip.

They emphasize the urgent need for international protection for the Palestinian people and advocate for a credible political process that leads to ending the Israeli occupation. The OIC supports the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state, with East Al-Quds as its capital, based on the June 4, 1967 borders.

They stress the importance of taking necessary measures to end the Israeli occupation and help the Palestinian people attain their legitimate rights.
