The Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, condemned the aggression conducted by Israeli extremist settlers against the mosque in Yasuf village in the occupied West Bank.

The Secretary General stated that the profanation of the mosque and the torching of Quran copies found in it and the spraying of racist graffiti slogans on the mosque's walls against Islam and Muslims represent a blatant aggression against the sanctity of sacred places. He added that this aggression confirms the urgent need for the international community to intervene in order to compel Israel to put an end to its aggressions and comply with the stipulations of international law and the Geneva Convention.
