“Israel must come out of its state of madness”: Turkish President again demands to stop attacks on Gaza
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has become one of the most vocal critics, at least verbally, of Israel's actions in the Gaza Strip. He again demanded an immediate end to missile attacks on the Palestinian enclave.
During the night alone, the Israeli air force carried out strikes on 150 targets in the north of the enclave. Yesterday, the Gaza Strip was hit by powerful rocket attacks, and Internet and mobile communications were lost in the enclave. Such actions by Israeli troops led to a surge of indignation in many countries around the world. Recep Tayyip Erdogan could not help but react.
- stated the president of Turkey.
The head of the Turkish state called on his fellow citizens to take part in a mass rally in support of Palestine in Istanbul, at Ataturk Airport. He emphasized that the Turks stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people and together with them protest against Israel's actions.
Despite the fact that Turkey is a military-political ally of the United States in the North Atlantic Alliance, in recent days Erdogan has spoken harshly against Washington. This is facilitated by the one-sided position of the administration of US President Joe Biden, which in the future threatens to deprive Washington of any support and influence in the Islamic world, including Turkey, the Arab monarchies of the Persian Gulf, and Pakistan and Egypt.
