OIC Palestine pledge calls for international protection

The pledge was issued during the extraordinary summit called in Istanbul on Friday.

    Leaders of Muslim nations have called for an international force to protect Palestinians, following the killing of more than 60 protesters by Israeli forces in Gaza this week.

    An extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation in Istanbul voiced determination to take action against countries moving embassies to Jerusalem, as the US has done.
