Jeddah / UNA / The Organization of Islamic Cooperation will hold an extraordinary session of the Islamic Conference of Information Ministers in Istanbul, the Republic of Turkey, on February 24, 2024, with the aim of discussing joint efforts to confront “media misinformation and attacks committed by the Israeli occupation authorities against journalists and media outlets in the occupied Palestinian territory.” “ The Republic of Turkey is hosting the conference, in its capacity as President of the current session of the Islamic Conference of Information Ministers, where it is expected that information ministers and ministers responsible for communication in the member states of the organization will participate in the conference.

It is expected that His Excellency the Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, Mr. Hussein Ibrahim Taha, will deliver a speech at the conference, informing the participants of the ongoing crimes of the Israeli occupation against journalists and workers in various media outlets and press and media institutions.

It is noteworthy that Israel, the occupying power, is working to suppress the media in the Gaza Strip and Palestine in general, and reports documented the targeting of more than 140 media institutions, which led to the martyrdom of more than a hundred people working in the press and media sector since October 7, 2023, and it also destroyed Buildings of media institutions, cutting off Internet service for workers in the media sector and residents of the Gaza Strip in general. The Israeli occupation has been waging a relentless war against the residents of the Gaza Strip for more than four months, which has led to a series of massacres, comprehensive destruction, and widespread displacement among Palestinians, in addition to the destruction of all service sectors, including the media sector.
