Iran is urging members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to impose sanctions on Israel and expel all Israeli ambassadors in response to a lethal attack on al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian made this call during an emergency OIC meeting held in the Saudi city of Jeddah to address the escalating Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Amirabdollahian’s statement, issued on Wednesday, advocates for an immediate and comprehensive embargo on Israel by Islamic countries. This embargo would encompass oil sanctions and the expulsion of Israeli ambassadors if diplomatic relations have been established with the Zionist regime, according to the Iranian Foreign Ministry.
Furthermore, Amirabdollahian is pushing for the establishment of a team of Islamic lawyers to document any potential war crimes committed by Israel in Gaza.
It’s worth noting that Iran does not maintain diplomatic relations with Israel.
