The General Secretariat of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Tuesday held Israel, the occupying power, fully responsible for the death of the Palestinian prisoner Khader Adnan, who died while incarcerated in the Israeli occupation prisons after 87 days of hunger strike in protest against his detention without charge or trial.
The OIC also condemned in a statement “the Israeli occupation’s systematic policy of medical negligence, arbitrary measures, inhumane treatment of Palestinian prisoners, and deprivation of their basic rights guaranteed by the relevant international conventions and covenants.”
It also affirmed its support for the Palestinian prisoners and called, at the same time, on the competent international bodies to intervene quickly to protect their rights, and to put pressure on Israel, the occupying power, “to stop its continuous violations against them and to release them immediately.”
