ISLAMABAD: Caretaker Prime Minister (PM) Anwaarul Haq Kakar will attend an ‘extraordinary summit’ of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), convened by Saudi Arabia, to discuss the escalating military situation in Gaza.
In a statement, Foreign Office (FO) Spokesperson Mumtaz Zehra Baloch said PM Kakar will pay an official visit to Saudi Arabia this week to attend the OIC’s extraordinary summit on Gaza escalation.
Israel has launched air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip following a cross-border attack by Hamas on October 7.
Israel relentlessly bombarded the besieged Gaza Strip, levelling entire city blocks and killing thousands, mostly women and children, according to the Hamas-run health ministry.
Palestinian health ministry said at least 10,022 Palestinians have since been killed, including 4,104 children. International organisations have said hospitals cannot cope with the wounded and food and clean water are running out with aid deliveries nowhere near enough.
Amid the conflict, Saudi Arabia convened an extraordinary summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to discuss the escalating military situation in Gaza.
The extraordinary summit will take place on November 12 as leaders of the Islamic countries are expected to attend.
