Erdogan to Abbas: Israel will inevitably pay the price for its injustice

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan assured his Palestinian counterpart, Mahmoud Abbas, on Friday that Israel will inevitably pay the price for the injustice it is practicing in Gaza.

The head of the Turkish Presidency's Communications Department, Fakhruddin Altun, told the official TRT Haber channel that President Erdogan had a phone call with Abbas.

Altun quoted President Erdogan as telling Abbas: “No matter what happens, we will continue to stand steadfast in the face of the brutal Israeli attacks on Gaza.”

Erdogan added: "We must mobilize all capabilities for a ceasefire, including the United Nations Security Council resolution."

In this regard, he pointed to the need to achieve consensus between all Palestinian factions.

Erdogan also stressed the need to struggle against Israel with determination and unity.

On the other hand, the head of the Turkish Presidency’s Communications Department touched on the Israeli attack that targeted a team for the official Turkish channel “TRT Arabi” in Gaza on Friday.

Altoun pointed to the massacres committed by Israel against civilians, innocent people, health care workers and journalists in Gaza, in front of the eyes of the whole world, without regard to any law, principle or limits.

He said that humanity cannot show unity against these practices.

Alton stressed that Turkey seeks to raise its voice strongly and stand by the truth in the face of this injustice, massacres and genocide committed by Israel.

He pointed out that photographer Sami Shehadeh was subjected to a deliberate Israeli attack today because he is a journalist who represents the truth and stands by it.

Alton stressed that Israel had previously carried out such a deliberate attack on 140 journalists as part of a strategic move aimed at confronting the truth.

He pointed out that Western and international media institutions, which can set an agenda whenever they want in a completely artificial way under the guise of freedom of the press, bury their heads in the sand in the face of Israel’s practices.

Alton stated that Türkiye is doing its utmost to expose the injustice practiced by Israel to the whole world.

He stressed that they will continue the struggle through the "TRT" network, Anadolu Agency and all other media institutions.
