The Turkish “Van” sends 150 tons of flour to Gaza


The Turkish state of Van sent 150 tons of flour to the residents of Gaza, which is under Israeli attack.

The spokesman for the Palestine Support Platform, Ghareeb Jussour, said in a statement to reporters on Saturday that they purchased 150 tons of flour to send to the people of Gaza with the donations they collected as part of the aid collection campaign.

He added that 6 trucks loaded with bags of flour were sent from the industrial zone in the state of Van to the port of Mersin in southern Turkey.

The spokesman explained: “The Israeli occupation is committing genocide in Gaza, destroying buildings there and leaving people to face hunger.”

He pointed out that they bought 150 tons of flour from the money they collected from Turkish donors in the state and sent it by truck to the port of Mersin, and from there it will be delivered to Gaza.

Since October 7, Israel has been waging a devastating war on Gaza that has left more than 110,000 people dead and wounded, most of them children and women, and massive destruction and famine that have claimed the lives of children and the elderly, according to Palestinian and UN data.

Israel continues its war despite the issuance of an immediate ceasefire resolution by the Security Council, and despite its appearance before the International Court of Justice on charges of committing “genocide.”
