OIC calls on international community to condemm Israel

Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has condemned Israel's raid on ships carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza.

OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu told A.A on Monday that Israel's operation was a violation of international laws.

Ihsanoglu asked UN to examine the incident in all dimensions, and called on international community and organizations to strongly condemn illegal behaviour of Israel.

Meanwhile, a crisis desk was set up at OIC HQs in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Early on Monday, Israeli navy forces raided a convoy of aid ships of IHH --a Turkish humanitarian relief organization-- carrying humanitarian aid for Gaza, killing more than 10 people and injuring 30 others.

Turkish Foreign Ministry protested Israel, and recalled its ambassador.

The flotilla, which includes three cargo ships and three passenger ships, was trying to draw attention to Israel's three-year blockade of the Gaza Strip. The boats were carrying items such as electric-powered wheelchairs, prefabricated homes and water purifiers.
