OIC denounces Israeli extremist attack on West Bank mosque

OIC has denounced the attack by Israeli extremist settlers against a mosque in Yasuf village in the occupied West Bank.

Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) secretary-general Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said the profanation of the mosque, the torching of Quran copies found in it and the spraying of racist graffiti against Islam and Muslims, represented a blatant aggression against the sanctity of sacred places.

"This aggression confirms the urgent need for the international community to intervene in order to compel Israel to put an end to its aggressions," he said in a statement issued in Jeddah where the OIC is based.

The secretary-general said Israel must also be compelled to comply with the stipulations of international law and the Geneva Convention.

Suspected extremist Jewish settlers attacked the mosque, burning holy books and spraying threatening graffiti in Hebrew on the building.
