OIC condemns Israeli aggression on Islamic cemetery



TEHRAN (IQNA) – The Organization for Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Tuesday denounced the Israeli regime’s aggression against the historic Ma’manullah cemetery in occupied Jerusalem al-Quds.

In a statement, the organization also condemned the opening of the so-called “Museum of Tolerance” by Israel on the Islamic cemetery and the exhumation of Muslim graves more than 1,000 years old.

“This comes against the background of Israeli occupation policies against the occupied city of Jerusalem, its people, shrines, Islamic identity and cultural monuments, and is a provocation to the feelings of Muslims in general, and Palestinians in particular ”, according to the declaration.

He also denounced the participation of the president of the International Football Association (FIFA) Gianni Infantino, in this event, believing that this constitutes a violation of the noble values ​​on which the sport is based, and the principles of the Statute of the International Football association, and reflects a clear and unacceptable bias in favor of the occupation.

The opening ceremony of the Museum of Tolerance took place this week despite calls from the Palestinians to stop the project. The museum was built in areas belonging to the Islamic cemetery.
