Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, during a speech before the parliamentary bloc of the Justice and Development Party in the Turkish Parliament, on Wednesday, that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s statements “weaken our hope of turning the ongoing agreement into a permanent ceasefire.”

Erdogan pointed out that “Israel continues to shed a lot of blood in order to ensure a longer life for Netanyahu,” adding: “What is happening in Gaza is one of the greatest injustices known to the people there, and through it, Netanyahu has earned himself a title that will be preserved in history, which is (the Butcher of Gaza).”

The Turkish president warned that “Netanyahu, through the crimes he commits in Gaza, is fueling anti-Semitism,” stressing that “hostility to Islam is growing because leaders in the West are using Hamas as a pretext and demonizing the Palestinians.”

Regarding the exchange deal, the Turkish President described the prisoner exchange between Hamas and Israel as a “positive development,” thanking all the sister countries that contributed to this agreement.

He pointed out that the shameful stain in Gaza will not be erased, nor will the waters of all seas purify it, stressing that "the crimes of the occupation there did not receive a reaction except for a few exceptions from the Western world."

He continued: "The people of Gaza are deprived of food, medicine, water and electricity, and more than 16 thousand martyrs in Gaza, the majority of whom are women and children, due to the Israeli aggression."

He stressed that "Turkey, as a state and a people, stands by our Palestinian brothers, and achieving peace can only be achieved through the establishment of an independent State of Palestine with East Jerusalem as its capital on the 1967 borders."

Erdogan stressed: “We harness all our international relations to serve the brothers in Gaza and lift injustice against them,” announcing his visit to the Emirates tomorrow to discuss developments in the situation in the Gaza Strip. He also confirmed that he will discuss climate issues with the brothers in the Emirates, in addition to “what we can do for Gaza.”

He continued: "We have stood by Gaza from day one. We will not allow the spread of malicious Israeli propaganda, and we will continue to send medical and humanitarian aid."

He added: "We will not allow any of our citizens to be targeted wherever they are and our position towards attacks targeting civilians is unified, regardless of their origins."

The Turkish President also vowed to hold Israel accountable, saying: “We will take all means to hold Israel accountable for its crimes, and we stand by our brothers in Gaza with all our capabilities.”
