Turkey’s Presidential Spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin on Friday condemned the latest Israeli attack on the Gaza Strip, Anadolu Agency reported.
“We strongly condemn Israel’s airstrike on Gaza during the holy month of Ramadan,” Kalin posted on Twitter.
He reiterated, according to Anadolu Agency, Turkey’s support for the Palestinian nation and called on Israel to “immediately” cease the attacks.
Omer Celik, the ruling Justice and Development Party spokesperson, also took to Twitter to condemn the Israeli attack on the besieged Gaza Strip.
“Israel once again attacked Gaza in the month of Ramadan,” he expressed, adding that the attack was unacceptable.
“Israel has shown once again that it does not care about any humanitarian values,” Celik wrote, adding that Turkey will never stop supporting the Palestinian people.
On Thursday, the Israeli army claimed on Twitter that it hit targets belonging to the Palestinian resistance group Hamas, an ammunition factory and a tunnel used for weapons shipments in Gaza.
The densely populated Gaza Strip has been under an Egyptian-Israeli blockade since 2007, when Hamas ended security chaos carried out by the Palestinian secular movement Fatah, after winning the parliamentary elections.
The blockade has undermined living conditions in the coastal enclave.
