ISTANBUL, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Palestinian counterpart Mahmoud Abbas are jointly determined to refer the recent “Israeli genocide” to the United Nations, the official Turkish news agency Anadolu said on Tuesday.
The two leaders expressed their resolve to seek international retaliation for the Israel’s mass killing of Palestinian demonstrators during a telephone call by Erdogan to Abbas, inquiring about his wellbeing — following a recent health setback.
Erdogan and Abbas reviewed outcome of the recent extraordinary Islamic Summit, hosted by Turkey, dedicated for the Palestinian cause and demonstrating solidarity with the Palestinian people in the face of Israeli attacks.
According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, Israeli troops have killed 112 Palestinians and wounded more than 13,000 others since two months ago.
Most of the Palestinians were killed during demonstrations held on the boundaries of Gaza Strip, marking the 70th anniversary of “Al-Nakba,” the 1948 proclamation of Israel that was at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who became homeless.
