OIC condemns assassination attempt on Palestinian prime minister

Jeddah The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemned the assassination attempt, which targeted the convoy of Palestinian Prime Minister Rami al-Hamdallah and Head of the Palestinian General Intelligence Service Majid Faraj, during their visit to the Gaza Strip on Tuesday.

The Organization considered that this sinful attempt was aimed at striking national unity and undermining efforts to achieve Palestinian reconciliation.

The OIC General Secretariat called on the Palestinian authorities to investigate the attack and prosecute those behind it and bring them to justice. It also affirmed its support for the efforts being exerted to implement the national reconciliation agreement and enable this government to assume its full responsibilities in the Gaza Strip.
