Erdogan accuses Israel of 'genocide' after Palestinian deaths on Gaza border

The Turkish president on Monday condemned the “humanitarian tragedy” in Gaza describing Israeli violence against Palestinian protests as a “genocide”, Anadolu reported.

STEPANAKERT, MAY 15, ARTSAKHPRESS:At least 55 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred Monday -- and hundreds more injured -- by Israeli army forces deployed along the Gaza border, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry. 

“Israel is a terrorist state,” said Erdogan, speaking to scholarship students in London. “We will continue to stand with Palestinian people with determination.” 

“We will not allow today to be the day Muslim world loses Jerusalem,” he said, condemning the “humanitarian tragedy, this genocide”, no matter where it comes from, “either Israel or the United States”. 

The Turkish president added that a “big rally” would be held in Istanbul on Friday over the violence in Gaza.

President Erdogan also said that the Turkish Red Crescent would deliver humanitarian aid to hospitals in Gaza.
