Organization of Islamic Cooperation rights commission condemns killing of innocent Palestinians

The OIC Independent Permanent Human Rights Commission (IPHRC) condemned in the strongest terms the arbitrary killing of at least 60 Palestinians, including children, by the Israeli Occupation Forces, using live fire against innocent civilians protesting the illegal inauguration of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

IPHRC reiterated its firm view that the shifting of the US Embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem is a dangerous and illegal unilateral act that not only contravenes international law, but also goes against all UN Security Council, General Assembly and Human Rights Council Resolutions, which affirm the status of Al-Quds as an occupied territory under Israel, the occupying power, since 1967.

IPHRC endorsed the latest statement issued by the UN Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination on May 14 that urged Israel, the occupying power, to put an immediate end to the disproportionate use of force against Palestinian demonstrators, to refrain from any act that could lead to further casualties and to ensure prompt and unimpeded access to medical treatment to injured Palestinians as well as to initiate an impartial investigation into the use of force against Palestinian demonstrators in compliance with international standards and hold those responsible accountable.
