The President of the Republic of Turkiye, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, assured, Wednesday, that Turkiye “will continue to support Hamas which fights for the independence of its own lands and which defends Anatolia.”

Speaking at the parliamentary group meeting in Ankara, the Turkish Head of State reiterated his country’s support for the Palestinian cause.

“Above all, do not believe that Israel will stop at Gaza. If this terrorist state is not stopped, blinded by its delirium of promised lands, it will turn its gaze towards Anatolia,” he declared.

Erdogan also stressed that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Netanyahu and the accomplices of the genocide will be held responsible for every drop of blood they shed.”

He added: “On this day of the Nakba, the day of the Great Catastrophe, we declare once again, with all our being and all our resources, that we stand with Palestine and the Palestinian cause. “

“We (Türkiye) will also ensure that the perpetrators of genocide are brought to justice,” he insisted.

Some are looking for a way to break Türkiye’s support for the Palestinians, the Turkish leader recalled.

“Being targeted by Zionist assassins and their pawns is a medal of honor that we will wear proudly,” he said, assuring that nothing would scare them.

May 15, a day solemnly observed by Palestinians around the world to commemorate the anniversary of the Nakba.

Palestinians, both in Palestine and abroad, mark this day with various events that highlight the importance of this tragic historical event.

On Sunday, the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics released a report marking the 76th anniversary of the Nakba, saying that since 1948, approximately 134,000 Palestinians and Arabs have been killed inside and outside Palestine.

This year, the anniversary of the Nakba comes as the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip have suffered a devastating Israeli assault since October 7, which has left more than 35,000 Palestinians dead.
