OIC condemns Israel's abuse against Palestinian women in al-Khalil

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) strongly condemned the reported crimes of abuse and forced undressing of clothes against five Palestinian women by Zionist female troops in al-Khalil.


In a statement issued on Wednesday, the OIC called on relevant international organizations to assume their responsibilities by pressuring Israel to stop its daily violations of human rights in Palestine and to pursue it legally and criminally before the competent international bodies.


An investigation released by Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem on Tuesday revealed that Israeli female troops forced Palestinian women to strip naked in front of their children during a night raid on their homes on July 10.


Troops threatened to unleash K-9 dogs on the families if the women did not comply.


Meanwhile, Kuwait’s foreign minister, Sheikh Salem Al-Sabah, has reaffirmed his country’s unwavering support for the Palestinian people and efforts to secure their rights.


His comments came during a meeting with Philippe Lazzarini, the commissioner general of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, which took place on Wednesday on the sidelines of the 160th meeting of Arab League foreign ministers in Cairo, during which officials discussed ways to ensure the sustainability of UNRWA operations.


During his meeting with the Kuwaiti foreign minister, Lazzarini reviewed the humanitarian programs his agency provides to assist Palestinian refugees around the world. He also praised Kuwaiti authorities for their support of the Palestinian people and commended the nation for its contributions to aid efforts for refugees.


Sheikh Salem reaffirmed Kuwait’s commitment to the work of UNRWA, which he said plays an important role in delivering critical services to Palestinian refugees. In 2022, Kuwait provided $12 million to help fund the agency’s work, according to official figures.
