Hamas hopes OIC will reject U.S. decision on Jerusalem”

Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday arrived in Turkey to attend the special Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) summit on Al-Quds Al-Sharif (Jerusalem).

The Summit will be preceded by the Council of Foreign Ministers Meeting, which will be attended by Foreign Minister, Khawaja Muhammad Asif.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will leave for Turkey to participate in an emergency session of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Jerusalem, a source from the president's administration told Sputnik.

Jerusalem remains at the heart of the Israel-Palestine conflict, with Palestinians hoping that East Jerusalem - occupied by Israel since 1967 - might eventually serve as the capital of a Palestinian state. Egypt and the United Arab Emirates will send foreign ministers, while Saudi Arabia had yet to say how it would participate.

"We are waiting for the OIC to take a decision that matches the anger of the nations", Haniyeh said, pointing out that the expected decision is "to reject the USA recognition". Erdogan has already warned of cutting ties with Israel.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu was quoted in Hurriyet as saying that some Arab countries have not taken a hard enough line on this issue because Trump "scares them".

"If we don't defend Jerusalem today, when will we defend it?" he asked.

Haniyeh stressed, during the call, that the United States decision is an "aggression on the Palestinian people and the Islamic nation".

Trump officially declared Quds Israel's capital, despite warnings from around the world that the measure risks triggering a fresh wave of violence in the Middle East. Indeed Erdogan has come in the fore as a champion of the Palestinian cause and spearheaded the Muslim reaction to the U.S. decision by convening the OIC meeting in Istanbul to formulate a joint plan of action.
