A Libyan delegation participated in the Extraordinary Session of Islamic Conference of Information Ministers of the Member States of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Under the theme: “The Israeli Occupying Authority’s Disinformation and Hostilities against Journalists and Media Outlets in the Occupied Palestinian Territory” in Istanbul on Saturday.

The session addressed media misinformation and Israeli violations against journalists in the occupied Palestinian territories.

In his speech during the conference, the Minister of State for Communications, Walid Al-Lafi, reaffirmed the position of Libya, the people and the government, supporting the resistance and sacrifices of the Palestinian people, and rejecting the crimes of the occupation and its supporters as well as its flagrant violations of all international and humanitarian laws".

Al-Lafi pointed out the severity of the biased and misleading policy adopted by the Western media and social media platforms in support of Israeli crimes, praising at the same time the role of journalists and activists on social media who contributed to refuting these lies by spreading the truth from inside Palestine.

The attending ministers called on member states to make more efforts in support of the people of Gaza, and to assume their responsibilities toward this issue.

Meanwhile, Libya has joined the legal proceedings lodged with the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against the violations of the Israeli occupation in the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian territories.
