Relatives of the Turkish President took part in mass rallies in support of Palestine
Relatives of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan took part in mass protests in support of Palestine this weekend in Istanbul. We are talking about his son and son-in-law.
This was reported by the French news agency AFP.
It is also known that former speaker of the Turkish Parliament Mustafa Shentop and ex-Minister of Internal Affairs of Turkey Suleyman Soylu took part in the demonstrations. In total, several tens of thousands of people attended events in support of Palestine in Istanbul.
- one of the participants in the demonstration told AFP journalists, speaking about the attitude of the Israeli authorities towards the Palestinians.
He said that for a long time the Israelis killed local Arabs about one every day, and now they are doing it en masse. It is precisely this situation that, according to him, the march participants are protesting against.
- such inscriptions can be seen on posters that people carry.
The protesters also expressed support for the Hamas movement and demanded that the Turkish government send troops to the Gaza Strip.
Earlier, Turkish President Erdogan harshly condemned the actions of the Israeli military against the residents of the Palestinian Authority. He called them "a massacre of innocent people." According to the Turkish leader, Israel does not behave like a state. He strongly supported Palestine.
In response, representatives of Western countries reminded Erdogan that Turkey is a member of the North Atlantic Alliance, therefore the Turkish leadership must support the common values of NATO countries.
