The meeting decision was taken with the initiative of Turkey, and the telephone diplomacy of Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, said the sources on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

The meeting of the OIC Executive Committee will be held at the level of foreign ministers.

No date has yet been set for the meeting.

The Palestinian government will submit its official request for the meeting to the OIC after the Eid al-Fitr, the holiday marking the end of Islamic holy fasting month of Ramadan, which will be observed between May 24 and 26 this year.

Israel wants to annex parts of the occupied West Bank on July 1, as agreed between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, who has become a rival to the Blue and White party.

The plan sparked international condemnation and outrage.

The West Bank, including East Jerusalem, is seen as a territory occupied by international law, making all Jewish settlements illegal, as well as the planned annexation.

On Tuesday, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that Palestine is ending all agreements and understandings signed with Israel and the United States, including on security matters.
