Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis discussed the Palestine-Israel conflict, emphasizing the need to de-escalate tensions. Erdoğan stated that Turkey is working to end the crisis, which could have regional and global consequences.
He urged regional countries to halt violence and human rights violations and de-escalate tensions. At least 2,750 Palestinians, including a quarter of them children, died in Israeli bombardment in the Gaza Strip, with 9,700 injured and 1,000 trapped under rubble.
Turkey is a vocal opponent of Israel’s attacks on civilians in the Gaza Strip and calls for a two-state solution to permanently end the conflict. It is also spearheading efforts for humanitarian aid for Gazans trapped in the enclave, especially after Israel cut off vital resources.
