Turkish President Condemns Israeli “Massacre” in Gaza

HeadlineOct 12, 2023

In Ankara, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan condemned Israel’s blockade of Gaza and its relentless bombing campaign as a “massacre.”

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan: “Cutting off a city’s water, electricity, entry and exits, collapsing its infrastructure, destroying all of its centers of worship, from mosques to churches, as well as their schools, preventing people from getting the most fundamental needs, and bombing housing units where civilians reside — in other words, managing a conflict using every sort of embarrassing method — this is not a war, it is a massacre.”
