ICESCO condemns Israeli occupation attacks on Al-Fakhoura, Tal Al-Zaatar schools in the Gaza Strip
19 November 2023
The Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) condemns in the strongest terms the heinous crime committed of bombing Al-Fakhoura, Tal Al-Zaatar schools in the Gaza Strip, by the Israeli occupation, causing hundreds of casualties, including deaths and injuries.
While sharing the pain and anger of millions of people around the world, ICESCO affirms that the continuation of this brutal behavior, which makes no distinction whatsoever between schools, medical institutions and military facilities, demonstrates the Israeli occupation’s persistence on violating all international laws and norms, and disdaining the emerging positions around the globe against these barbaric actions which have become a disgrace to humanity, for no power has ever used its military machine with such hatred against children’s dormitories, schools and hospitals. With such an action, the system of values and morality undergoes an unprecedented blatant setback in history.
ICESCO renews its appeal to all international organizations, particularly those working in the fields of education, science and culture, to express a firm stance against these irresponsible actions and calls for taking the necessary measures to ensure their accountability otherwise this aggressive arrogance will undermine all good efforts to establish security and peace, thus paving the way for the growth of extremism, racism and hatred in all parts of the world.
In keeping with its duty, ICESCO confirms that it will be at the forefront of organizations to support the educational and cultural systems of the Gaza Strip, in continuity with its role in strengthening the efforts of the State of Palestine in the fields of education, science and culture.
