Those who pass judgment on human rights, freedoms have turned blind eye to children, babies, women brutally killed over last 105 days, says Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Those who turn a blind eye to the massacres and atrocities committed by Israel will suffer great regret, the Turkish president said on Friday.
Those who have caused the massacre of some 25,000 innocent people in Gaza, most of them women and children, will face the “burning consequences” of their actions, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a naval delivery ceremony in the northwestern Yalova Province.
“To put it bluntly, Western countries and international security institutions, which had their latest bad test on the Gaza issue, no longer have any credibility,” he added.
Those who pass judgment on human rights and freedoms have turned a blind eye to the children, babies, and women brutally killed over the last 105 days, since Israel’s attacks started on Oct. 7, he added.
“They are content to merely watch barbarities, escalating to genocide, perpetrated by today’s Fuhrer (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, his bloodthirsty team against Palestinians,” he added.
He added just like in Iraq, Bosnia, Syria, Yemen, Myanmar, Somalia, and Afghanistan, the institutions responsible for ensuring global security have failed and suffered a serious loss of reputation.
Israel has pounded the Gaza Strip since a cross-border attack by Hamas on Oct. 7, which Tel Aviv says killed nearly 1,200 people.
According to the UN, around 85% of Gazans have been displaced by the Israeli onslaught, while all of them are food insecure. Hundreds of thousands of people are living without shelter, and aid trucks entering the territory total less than half the number before the start of the conflict.
On Türkiye’s fight against terrorism, Erdogan said: “We will continue our determined fight against terrorism until the swamp of terrorism in Syria and Iraq is completely drained.”
