The Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) has condemned Israel's ongoing aggression against the Gaza Strip, an Iranian deputy minister says.
Iran's deputy minister of science, research and technology for international affairs, Arsalan Qorbani, said on Tuesday that at the opening of the Sixth Islamic Conference of Ministers of Higher Education and Scientific Research in Khartoum, the ISESCO has strongly condemned the brutal campaign of killing and destruction launched in defiance of international law by Israel that has so far left tens of Palestinians killed and many more injured.
Meanwhile, the Director General of the ISESCO Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri has called on member States to immediately bring solidarity aid to the Palestinian people in Gaza.
Altwaijri urged member States to provide financial support, medical and food relief and means of defense to the Palestinian people to help them stand against Zionist regime's arrogance and barbaric aggression.
He also called on the member states to put pressure on the international community to end Israel’s repeated aggressions and assist Palestinians in establishing their unified independent state with al-Quds as its capital.
On November 14, the Israeli military launched a series of new air and sea attacks, dubbed Operation Pillar of Cloud, against the Gazans.
The Israeli offensive has left at least 131 Palestinians dead, including senior Hamas commander Ahmed al-Ja'abari, the head of Ezzedeen al-Qassam Brigades.
