The foreign ministers of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Indonesia, Palestine and the Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) arrived in Moscow on Tuesday to discuss the Israeli war on Gaza with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, Russian news agency TASS reported, citing a diplomatic source.

On Monday, ministers from Arab and Muslim-majority countries visited China to discuss ways to put an end to the Israeli aggression on Gaza. 

“The goal is to formulate an international initiative to halt the war in Gaza and push for a genuine and serious political process, leading to a permanent and comprehensive peace in accordance with established international references,” the Saudi Gazette reported. 

The Kremlin press service also confirmed that Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part on Tuesday in an extraordinary online BRICS summit on the escalation of the situation in the Middle East.

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israel has, thus far, killed over 13,300 Palestinians, including over 5,600 children and over 3,550 women.

The Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.
