Iran Calls for Emergency OIC Meeting to Address Gaza Crisis

Iran's interim Foreign Minister Ali Bagheri Kani has requested an extraordinary meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to discuss the ongoing crisis in the Gaza Strip and put an end to what he called "Israeli genocide."

Iran (IMNA) - This move comes amid the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestinian fighters, which has resulted in significant human suffering and loss of life.

In a recent telephone conversation with Algeria's Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Attaf, Bagheri Kani discussed the latest developments in the Gaza war, including the Israeli regime's alleged crimes in Gaza and Rafah. He also expressed gratitude for the condolences received from Algerian officials following the deaths of Iran's late President Ayatollah Ebrahim Raeisi and former Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

Bagheri Kani emphasized the need for urgent and collective action by Muslim states to stop Israeli crimes against Palestinians and to increase humanitarian aid to Gaza. He welcomed the proposal for an extraordinary OIC meeting, which was accepted.

The conflict, which began on October 7 with Operation al-Aqsa Storm, has led to devastating consequences. Over 36,300 Palestinians have been killed, mostly women and children, and more than 1.7 million people have been internally displaced. The situation in Gaza remains dire, with ongoing violence and humanitarian crises.

The OIC meeting is expected to bring together Muslim countries to address the crisis and find a solution to the ongoing conflict.
