Palestine Islamic world top priority: Iranian spokesperson
Iran stresses the prominence of the Palestinian cause within the Islamic world in light as Israeli violations against Palestinians escalate.
The Palestinian cause is the Islamic world's main priority, said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Saeed Khatibzadeh, who participated in the meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
"Pleased to represent Iran in 48th OIC FMs meeting in Pakistan," Khatibzadeh said Tuesday on Twitter in light of the OIC meeting.
“Palestine is and will remain [the] top priority of [the] Muslim world, and no one can compromise on the cause with the apartheid regime of Israel," he added.
He stressed that the cause was that of the Islamic world from Yemen to Afghanistan.
"From Yemen to Afghanistan the Islamic world's unity is the key to address the crises."

The 48th meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation kicked off in Islamabad on Tuesday, entitled, "Building partnerships for unity, justice, and development."
The statement coming from the Iranian official at this time is significant due to Palestinian prisoners preparing for a landmark rights battle, as they will go on an open hunger strike as the Israeli occupation escalates its violation of their rights.
Hamas official Ismail Radwan told Al Mayadeen on Monday that Palestinian prisoners were preparing to start an open hunger strike in protest against the violations of their rights at the hands of the Israeli occupation after they ran out of options to reclaim these rights.
"The cause of the prisoners has a national consensus, and it is one of the triggers [that could lead to an explosion] in the region," Radwan warned, stressing that the Palestinian resistance backed the Israeli occupation, holding "Tel Aviv" responsible for any harm to them.
The Palestinian prisoners had announced a few days ago they would undergo an open hunger strike ahead of the holy month of Ramadan in protest against the oppression and aggression of the Israeli occupation.
