Turkish Foreign Ministry denounces Israel’s attacks on Erdogan

Ankara, Mar 22 (Prensa Latina) Türkiye Foreign Ministry today accused Israel of cruelty towards President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after his denunciation against Tel Aviv for crimes against civilians in Gaza.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry summoned the chargé d’affaires of the Turkish Embassy in that country for a ‘severe reprimand’ (…); they are trying to hide the serious crimes committed to create a shield of impunity.

They rage against President Erdogan for proclaiming the naked truth, a statement said.

Israel withdrew its ambassador to this capital last October after Erdogan compared the war in Gaza to the Holocaust, and Türkiye called for consultations with its ambassador to Tel Aviv in November.

The note from the Foreign Ministry today reaffirms that the country ‘will continue to tell the truth’ and assures that ‘all world public opinion is eagerly awaiting the day when senior Israeli officials will be brought to justice for their crimes’, in reference to the genocide trial opened in The Hague.

A few days ago, at a press conference with his counterpart Mahmoud Abbas, visiting here at the time, Erdogan declared that Tel Aviv government is carrying out a flagrant genocide against the Palestinian people with the unlimited support of Western powers.

Our brothers are living one of the most difficult periods in their history.

Israel is not only subjecting Gazans to hunger and thirst, but is also brutally killing them by dropping bombs on innocent people, he said.
