Jeddah, Sept. 5 (BNA)—Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Prof. Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu strongly condemned the horrendous crime perpetrated by the Israeli extremist settlers who set fire to a mosque in Qusra village, south of Nablus, in the West Bank, early today.

He stressed, in a statement distributed by OIC today, that strict measures need be taken to prevent such criminal acts, holding Israel fully responsible for these dangerous violations against the Palestinian people, properties and sanctities.
He also called on the international community and Human Rights Organizations to stop these violations which are likely to drag the region into a new vortex of violence and tension.
