Turkey recalls ambassadors from US, Israel after 60 Palestinians killed in Gaza ‘genocide’

Turkish government also declared three days of mourning on Monday


Editor’s note:  US troops occupying Syria are being supplied through Turkey while US air strikes on Syrian cities are being hosted by Turkey as well.  Is Erdogan going to throw the US and its terrorist allies out of Turkey or is all this empty talk?

The Turkish government also declared three days of mourning on Monday for over 60 Palestinians killed on the Israel-Gaza border. Israeli security forces opened fire on demonstrators gathering along the border fence to protest the relocation of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Israel is wreaking state terror. Israel is a terror state,” Erdogan told Turkish students in London in a speech broadcast by state television. “What Israel has done is a genocide. I condemn this humanitarian drama, the genocide, from whichever side it comes, Israel or America.”

“Turkey will react to this harshly,” Erdogan added.

Ankara condemned the “massacre” of Palestinians carried out by Israeli security forces, adding that regional and global peace and stability will not exist until a lasting a just solution to the Palestinian question is reached.

“We strongly condemn the decision of the U.S. Administration to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, violating international law and all relevant UN Resolutions. We reiterate that this action is legally null and void,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

Turkey has also called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation on Friday over the killings in Gaza, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag told the Anadolu Agency.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Istanbul on Monday, chanting slogans condemning Israel.

Earlier in the day, South Africa recalled its ambassador to Israel after the news of Gaza killings.

A number of other governments have condemned Israeli actions in Gaza and the US decision to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem.

“France again calls on the Israeli authorities to exercise discernment and restraint in the use of force that must be strictly proportionate,” said Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, adding that the US decision “violated international law.”

The UK “remains firmly committed to a two-state solution with Jerusalem as a shared capital,” said a spokesman for PM Theresa May. “We urge calm and restraint to avoid actions destructive to peace efforts.”

Moscow has condemned the decision by US President Donald Trump to move the embassy to Jerusalem.

“International resolutions declare that the status of Jerusalem – one of the most important issues of the entire peace process – must be resolved in direct negotiations between Israel and Palestine,” said Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

  1. Ankara is (at least coincidentally) moving toward constituting an “Islamic threat” against Israel all according to Illuminati plans of the Biblical and Koranic End Times.

  2. Are we tired of Zionist Israel yet? Will control over America’s, UK’s and, the EU’s currency, media, politicians, education, pornography, publishing and, the not so minor cash cow holohoax industry … will all this be enough to restrain a tired world population from actually becoming anti-Semite? Have the Zionist Jews just showed the world what they really are and, what they really think of others? Have we had enough?

  3. “Part of the proposal is to overcome the “80–20 rule” that requires the U.S. to purchase 80 percent of its legal opium from India and Turkey to include Afghanistan, by establishing a second-tier system of supply control that complements the current INCB regulated supply and demand system by providing poppy-based medicines to countries who cannot meet their demand under the current regulations. ”

    So is illegal opium getting across the Caspian. to be sold legally from Turkey to the US ?

    • who cares about the legal supply and, contractual agreements for legal opium. illegal opium is where the cash s.

    • Joe, I’ll clarify for the optically challenged. Erdogan has no podium of morality, what he does have, are several points of favorable position regarding negotiating with the US, namely trump, and wants to loot like the others.
      Military access like the article points out, is one, and being only one of 3 countries legally selling opium is another. His silence on Israel is for sale. There are several deals it could influence.
      Erdogan has jailed thousands in his own country where he is a Demagogue, very much the envy of Trump,..who wishes he could do the same,…and has openly assaulted peaceful protestors on camera in the US many times. Erdogan has no problem handling protestors with violence or jail or torture or anything. His vocalization of feigned outrage is just a negotiation veiled in false morality.

    • probably so….just what will it take and why isnt any government willing to stand against israel genocide?

      no one cares?
