“We will do everything in our power to ensure that these (Israeli) crimes are punished impartially.” – Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday that there is “ample evidence” to hold the Israeli government accountable at the International Criminal Court (ICC), the Anadolu News Agency reported.

“There is ample evidence for the Israeli administration to be tried at the International Criminal Court. We will do everything in our power to ensure that these crimes are punished impartially,” Erdogan said as he returned from a day-long visit to Germany.

Speaking of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Turkish leader said: “Netanyahu is a goner; we are about to get rid of him. (..) Currently, 60-70% of his own country’s citizens oppose Netanyahu.”

Anadolu quoted Erdogan as saying that Türkiye will continue to stand by the oppressed in Gaza. 

“Israel is attempting to obstruct aid and starve Gaza of food and water. But we do not give up,” he said, adding:

“Regardless of the obstacles, we will continue to keep Gaza alive. The entire world, particularly Islamic countries, should mobilize to provide aid.”

According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israel has, thus far, killed over 12,000 Palestinians, including 5,000 children and over 3,000 women.

The Israeli army continues to pound civilian homes throughout the Gaza Strip with new massacres reported everywhere in the besieged enclave.

  1. President Erdogan is, sadly, one of the all too few world leaders speaking out in condemnation of Israel and its bloodlust while others just look on meekly.
    But there will be more following him the longer the daily slaughter goes on.
    Biden and the USA, along with others, who not only support Israel but supply it with its very weapons of slaughter, will ultimately be shown to be on the wrong side of history.
    Just as the Holocaust must never be forgotten, neither must this second Nakba nor its perpetrators and backers.
