OIC to Hold Ministerial Meeting to Discuss Launching of Ballistic Missile on Makkah

Jeddah, 01 Shafar 1438/01 November 2016 (MINA) – The Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation,OIC, Iyad Ameen Madani, has invited the members of the Executive Committee at ministerial level to an extraordinary meeting to be held on Saturday, 5th November, 2016, at the headquarters of the OIC General-Secretariat in Jeddah.

The Executive Committee meeting will discuss the serious development represented by the launching of a ballistic missile towards Makkah by Houthi and Saleh militias.

The OIC strongly condemned the launch of ballistic missiles by the militias of Houthi and Salih targeting the holy city of Makkah Al-Mukarramah.

Madani stressed that this abhorrent act is another one in a series of dangerous attacks targeting holy places in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as with the dreadful attack in the vicinity of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah Al-Munawarah last June.

He considered the launch of a ballistic missile by the militias of Houthi and Salih on Makkah is foolishness and a complete disregard and disrespect to the feelings of Muslims and their sanctities. (T/R07/R01)
