"We demanded that Israel be condemned for the massacres committed against the Palestinians, the latest one in Nablus, and to provide international protection for the Palestinians," al-Maliki said in the statement.
He also said that Palestine called for emergency meetings of the Arab League and the OIC and demanded that the member states of these organizations condemn Israel and support Palestine's demand for international protection.Anadolu Agency website contains only a portion of the news stories offered to subscribers in the AA News Broadcasting System (HAS), and in summarized form.
