According to the official, Erdogan is following a pattern of behavior he used in 2010 following the MV Mavi Marmara protest ship incident, in which he rode his confrontational approach to Israel to a position of great popularity in the Arab and Muslim world.

In addition, some 25 foreign ministers, including from Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Kazakhstan, are expected to attend.

President Rouhani is slated to leave Tehran for the Turkish city of Istanbul on Tuesday evening to take part in the OIC summit, Vice-President for Communication and Information Affairs Parviz Ismaili said on his Twitter account on Sunday.

Malaysia affirms commitment and "unwavering support" for the Palestinian people in their pursuit to attain their "legitimate and inalienable rights" for an independent State of Palestine based on pre-1967 borders, with East Jerusalem as capital. With only one day to go, Cavusoglu admitted several of the 57 OIC nations have not indicated who they will send, prominently including Saudi Arabia.

The summit will discuss the recent United States decision to shift its embassy from Tel Aviv to occupied Jerusalem.

In addition to Egypt and Jordan with which Israel has peace agreements, it also has strong ties with a few countries in the OIC, such as Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan.

Uniting the Palestinian positions, as well as the Arab and Islamic positions will support the efforts to face the U.S. decision and will support the Palestinian intifada.

Meanwhile, Adnan al-Husayni, the Jerusalem governor of the Palestinian Authority, has suggested that the OIC should declare Jerusalem as the capital of the state of Palestine in response to Trump's action.

Al-Husainy made it clear that Tel Aviv and Trump must retract their decisions and the extraordinary OIC summit will not only be a beacon of hope for the Palestinians, but also to all Muslims and the world community.
