OIC condemns Israeli PM’s announcement on West Bank

Amman, The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has condemned in the strongest terms Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intention to impose Israeli sovereignty over the Jordan Valley, the northern Dead Sea and illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.

In a statement issued Wednesday, OIC Secretary General, Yousef Othaimeen, held Israel accountable for the ramifications of this “illegal” declaration that would undermine any international effort to achieve a just, lasting and comprehensive peace settlement to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict based on the two-state solution, calling on the international community to condemn this provocative declaration and coerce Israel into ceasing all unilateral actions as they are null and void.

He said that the organization will hold an extraordinary meeting at the level of foreign ministers to discuss this serious Israeli escalation and take urgent political and legal action.
