The Organization of Islamic Cooperation condemns “war crimes” by Israel in Gaza and urges a meeting of donors on financing reconstruction in the enclave devastated by the month-long war.
In a statement after a ministerial meeting, the second on Gaza in three days, the OIC says that “in the liveliest terms” the meeting condemns Israel, “the occupying force, for war crimes it doesn’t stop committing in the Palestinian territories.”
“Israel should immediately cease its aggression against the Palestinian people and shoulder political and legal responsibility for war crimes,” the statement says.
“Israel should realize that peace is the only option to survive,” adds Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian official says Tuesday that Egypt has offered to host a conference of Gaza donors.
