Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said today that Ankara will continue to make every effort to help find a peaceful solution to regional conflicts, including the Israel-Palestine conflict, reports Anadolu.
Erdoğan had a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“During the conversation, the Russia-Ukraine war was discussed, as well as the conflicts between Israel and Palestine and the humanitarian crisis in the region,” said Turkey’s Communications Directorate on the “X” social platform.
“Declaring that it is possible to resolve regional conflicts through peaceful means, especially the Israel-Palestine dispute, President Erdoğan noted that Turkey will continue to make every effort to this end,” it was further announced.
The conflict in Gaza, under Israeli bombardment and blockade since October 7, began when Hamas launched Operation Al-Aqsa Storm – a surprise multiple attack with rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel by land, sea and air.
Hamas said the incursion was in retaliation for attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque and increasing violence by Israeli settlers.
The Israeli military then launched Operation Iron Swords in the Gaza Strip, placing the territory’s 2.3 million residents under a total siege and blockade of food, fuel and medical supplies.
The death toll in the Gaza Strip due to ongoing Israeli attacks has risen to 4,385, including 1,756 children on Saturday, while the toll stands at more than 1,400 people in Israel.
