Turkey is at the forefront of countries that passed the Gaza test


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that his country was at the forefront of countries that passed the test of dealing with what is happening in the Gaza Strip.

This came in a speech on Monday during his participation via video conference technology in the opening ceremony of archaeological monuments whose restoration had been completed inside Turkey.

Erdogan added, “Turkey is the first in the world to send aid to Gaza, with a total of 50,000 tons.”

He stated that as part of the aid provided to Gaza, an eighth ship carrying 125,000 food parcels was sent to Gaza at the end of March.

He continued: “We are constantly working to increase pressure at the diplomatic and commercial levels in order to force the Israeli government, which has been excessive in killing, to cease fire.”

He added: “In the first stage, we imposed restrictions on the export of 54 products, and as of last week we stopped export and import transactions with Israel for all products.”


Erdogan explained that Turkey also decided to intervene in the genocide case filed against Israel at the International Court of Justice.

He continued: “We will use all our resources to ensure that those who killed 35,000 of our brothers, including 15,000 children, are held accountable before the law. I believe that our insistence will encourage other countries that want to stop the bloodshed in the region.”

Erdogan stressed that the Turkish people, who came to help the Palestinian people in their most difficult days, not only fulfill the duty of brotherhood, but also reflect the conscience of humanity.

Since October 7, Israel has been waging a devastating war on Gaza, leaving tens of thousands dead and wounded, most of them children and women, and massive destruction and famine that claimed the lives of children and the elderly.

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.”
