RE­AC­TIONS FROM TURKEY CON­TINUE TO POUR IN ON IS­RAEL’S VI­O­LENCE

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Front Page -

TURKEY is still out­raged about the lat­est Is­raeli vi­o­lence towards Pales­tini­ans that re­sulted in the killing of 62 with many protests tak­ing place all over the coun­try as well as re­ac­tions from sev­eral po­lit­i­cal par­ties.

There have been sev­eral pub­lic protests all over Turkey, some of which were in front of the U.S. and Is­raeli em­bassies and con­sulates, since an of­fi­cial three days of mourn­ing was an­nounced on Mon­day. Sev­eral non­govern­men­tal or­ga­ni­za­tions or­ga­nized col­lec­tive prayers and pa­rades to com­mem­o­rate the vic­tims of Is­raeli at­tacks.

There have also been re­ac­tions from sev­eral po­lit­i­cal par­ties. Na­tion­al­ist Move­ment Party (MHP) Deputy Chief Ce­lal Adan said in a writ­ten state­ment on the is­sue that the Is­raelis and Amer­i­cans are the ones who are re­spon­si­ble from the killing of innocent Pales­tini­ans and that they would not be able to get rid of this dirt on their hands no mat­ter what they do.

Great Union Party (BBP) Chair­man Mustafa Des­tici held a press meet­ing on the mat­ter and in­di­cated that Is­rael is com­mit­ting geno­cide with the support of the U.S.

Repub­li­can Peo­ple’s Party (CHP) Deputy Chair­man Öztürk Yıl­maz un­der­lined that other than con­demn­ing the actions of both Is­rael and the U.S., some con­crete steps should be taken, which he hopes the meet­ing to be held on Fri­day will be fruit­ful.

“The ex­tra­or­di­nary meet­ing on Fri­day will give a very strong mes­sage to the world from Is­tan­bul,” Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­doğan said, dur­ing his joint press con­fer­ence with U.K. Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May on Tues­day, adding that all mem­bers of the Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Is­lamic Co­op­er­a­tion (OIC) were in­vited.

Felicity Party (SP) Chair­man Temel Karamol­lao­plu and Pa­tri­otic Party (VP) Gen­eral-Sec­re­tary Utku Rey­han, on the other hand, paid vis­its to Pales­tine’s en­voy to Ankara Dr. Faed Mustafa to em­pha­size sol­i­dar­ity.
