Iran Calls for Documenting Gaza War Crimes, Punishing Israeli Officials
Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian has proposed the establishment of a team of Muslim jurists to support Palestine and document what he referred to as "atrocities" committed by the Zionist regime in Gaza.

Amirabdollahiah has called for international attention to the situation in Gaza during a meeting with Hissein Brahim Taha, the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), held in Jeddah on Wednesday.

The purpose of this documentation is to seek justice by prosecuting and punishing individuals accused of being Israeli war criminals and their sponsors on the international stage, he said.

The Iranian Foreign Minister “stressed the need for Muslim nations organizing immediate and complete boycotts against the Zionist regime and imposing oil sanctions on Israel,” Iranian state media reported. He called for the expulsion of the ambassadors of the Zionist regime from countries that maintain diplomatic relations with Israel.

In response to these statements, the OIC chief, Brahim Taha, expressed his support for Iran's position and emphasized the need for unity and solidarity among Muslim nations to address the situation in Gaza. Taha also mentioned his concern over what he referred to as a "heinous crime," the Israeli regime's alleged recent attack on Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza.

The OIC's Executive Committee is currently holding an emergency extraordinary meeting at the ministerial level in Jeddah to discuss the situation in the Gaza Strip and the deteriorating humanitarian conditions.

The ongoing conflict in Gaza has resulted in significant casualties, with reports indicating that more than 3,000 Palestinians have lost their lives in Israeli attacks since Hamas's operation outside Gaza on October 7. The situation continues to be a matter of international concern, with diplomatic efforts and calls for justice ongoing.
