AMMAN, (PIC)– The Islamic Conference for Jerusalem called on the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to take effective steps at the international level to activate the UN resolutions on Israeli violations in occupied Jerusalem.

The executive body of the conference said at the end of its meeting on Wednesday in Amman that the Israeli assaults on religious and historical sites in Jerusalem and all the occupied Palestinian territories fell in line with an Israeli scheme implemented gradually.

The executive body called on the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the UN Security Council chairman to take effective measures to stop the Israeli violations in the occupied Palestinian territories.
