Iran’s Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani has called for an emergency meeting of the Parliamentary Union of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation Member States’ (PUIC) Presidential Troika over the Israeli regime’s airstrikes on the Gaza Strip.
Larijani, who is the current president of the PUIC conference, held telephone conversations with Speaker of Mali National Assembly Issaka Sidibé and Speaker of Sudan’s National Assembly Fatih Ezzedine al-Mansur as the current and future chairmen of the PUIC on Monday.
The PUIC Presidential Troika consists of the previous, current, and future presidents of the PUIC Conference.
Larijani also condemned the silence of international circles and so-called advocates of human rights on Israel’s killing of defenseless Palestinians including women and children in Gaza.
All countries and nations, particularly Muslim governments, shoulder a responsibility in the face of the heinous massacre and crimes committed by the Quds-occupying regime (Israel).
He called for putting an end to Israel’s brutal attacks by strengthening solidarity among Muslim countries.
Israel continues to pound the Gaza Strip for the seventh straight day. The overall death toll from seven days of Israeli attacks on the coastal enclave has risen to 175. The Israeli military began its latest assault on Gaza last Tuesday.
More than 1,200 Palestinians have been also injured as a result of the ongoing assaults.
