July 23, 2014 | 12:00 AM

Tehran: The Parliamentary Union of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (PUIC) Presidential Troika, which discussed the Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip, called on all Muslims to unite to support the Palestinian issue and help the Palestinian people by all means possible.

A communiqué issued after the meeting held last night in the Iranian capital of Tehran asked for punishment to those behind the war crimes and the crimes against humanity in Gaza and demanded international justice for them.

The Troika also appealed to the international organisations, in particular the Inter-Parliamentary Union, to work towards the release of all Palestinian prisoners and detainees.

The statement said the siege imposed on the Palestinian people is a flagrant violation of human rights, and called for lifting it immediately.
