Pakistan has asked the international community to end the massacre of Palestinians in Gaza Strip. The demand came during the emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC). 

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in his address, slammed Israel for its tyrannical measures, which include bombing Gaza and killing scores of innocent children.

"Pakistan condemns Israel's aggression in strong words. Israel's aggression in Gaza should stop immediately" Qureshi was quoted as saying by The News.

"Israel is violating human rights laws in Gaza,” he said, adding, "The attack on the Palestinians is a violation of international law as well." He further added that it was up to the international community to end this bloodbath in Gaza.

The fighting that has been going on for just over a week now, has killed over 140 Palestinians, including scores of children and women. Haman, the militant organization that controls Gaza, has lost around over 15 senior leaders and commanders in Israeli air raids and bombing campaigns. 

Saudi Arabia had convened the OIC foreign ministerial-level meeting to discuss the worsening situation in the region. Muslim countries around the world have voiced their support in favor of Palestinians.
