Iran Calls on Islamic States to Sanction Israel


DUBAI — Islamic countries should impose an oil embargo and other sanctions on Israel and expel all Israeli ambassadors, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said on Wednesday.

“The foreign minister calls for an immediate and complete embargo on Israel by Islamic countries, including oil sanctions, in addition to expelling Israeli ambassadors if relations with the Zionist regime have been established,” the Iranian foreign ministry said.

Amirabdollahian also called for the formation of a team of Islamic lawyers to document potential war crimes committed by Israel in Gaza.

He also met Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Faisal bin Farhan on the sidelines of an OIC meeting in Jeddah, where they discussed the Gaza situation. — Reuters
