The Organization of Islamic Cooperation [OIC] writes to the members of the United Nations Security Council [UNSC], urging the body to come in the way of a plan announced by the ‘Israeli’ occupation entity for annexation of significant portions of the occupied West Bank.

The letter was addressed by the 57-member organization’s Secretary-General Yousef al-Othaimeen to the UNSC’s members as well as the members of the Middle East Quartet — the European Union, Russia, the United Nations, and the United States— Arabic-language Rai al-Youm news website reported on Tuesday.

The letter urged the Council to adopt “the necessary measures” that would prevent the annexation and compel ‘Israel’ to stop all its illegal activities.

The OIC also urged the UNSC to hold an emergency meeting to “salvage the [remaining] opportunities for peace, and revive attempts at reinstatement of the political process under international supervision.”

Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced the plan to annex 30 percent of the occupied Palestinian territory — namely the areas upon which the occupation regime has built its illegal settlements as well as the Jordan Valley — after US President Donald Trump backed the annexation in January.
