Turkey's Erdogan: Israel Must Stop 'Massacre' Of Palestinians In Gaza

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan severely criticized Israel's recent airstrikes against targets in the Gaza Strip, saying in a speech on Tuesday that the attacks represented a "massacre" of the coastal enclave's residents.

Addressing Israeli strikes against Gaza militants in a speech to Turkish parliament on Tuesday, Erdogan urged Israel to "stop the brutal attack against Palestinians and stop the massacre and bloodshed."

The Turkish PM then referred to the Israeli strikes as "state terror," saying that the Turkish people must "remember that Gazans are our brothers, and will always remain so."

Erdogan also referred to the ongoing crisis in Syria, saying that "the window of opportunity was closing following the massacres taking place daily in the country," adding, however, that Turkey "was making every possible effort to prevent further escalation in Syria."

Erdogan approves courtís decision on stifling the massacre of the own citizens


ANKARA, MARCH 13, ARMENPRESS: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who sheds crocodile tears for residents of Gaza, Palestine, and for Syria's opposition on every occasion, has approved the court's decision on quashing the case for stifling the massacre of alevies of Svaz.

"It is a success for the nation and state," Erdogan told journalists, Armenpress reports citing CNNTurk TV Channel.

In July 2, 1993, Turkish nationalists fired Mediamax Hotel, Svaz, where 200 Turkey-based alevies (shia direction of Islam) held a meeting. 37 people were killed. Turkish writer Aziz Nesin was among the injured.
