World Reacts against Israeli Regime Killing of 61 Palestinians, Injuring 2,700

Alwaght- Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan fiercely criticized Israeli regime over the recent bloodshed in Gaza.

Israeli forces killed at least 61 Palestinians on May 14 during protests near the Gaza fence on the eve of the 70th anniversary of Israeli regime's creation that Palestinians call the Nakba Day (the Day of Catastrophe), which coincided this year with Washington’s embassy relocation.

More than 2,700 Palestinians were also wounded as the Israeli forces used snipers, airstrikes, tank fire and tear gas to target the demonstrators along Gaza Border.

Erdogan took to Twitter to slam Tel Aviv regime's premier Benjamin Netanyahu, saying "Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people’s lands for 60+ yrs in violation of UN resolutions. He has the blood of Palestinians on his hands and can’t cover up crimes by attacking Turkey.”

Turkish president also defended Palestinian Hamas movement that Israeli regime and its staunch ally, the US, has blacklisted as terrorist group.

"Reminder to Netanyahu: Hamas is not a terrorist organization and Palestinians are not terrorists. It is a resistance movement that defends the Palestinian homeland against an occupying power. The world stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine against their oppressors,” he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Turkish government spokesman Bekir Bozdag said that Ankara held the US equally accountable for Israel’s massacre of Palestinians in Gaza.

"The blood of innocent Palestinians is on the hands of the United States,” Bozdag said. “The United States is part of the problem, not the solution".

Turkey and Israeli regime have also expelled their envoys.

A Turkish Foreign Ministry source said on Tuesday that Israeli Ambassador to Ankara Eitan Naeh had been told that it would be “appropriate” if he returned to the occupied territories “for some time.”

Hours later, Israel’s ministry for foreign affairs said that Turkish Consul General in Jerusalem al-Quds Husnu Gurcan Turkoglu had been summoned and told to return to Turkey “for consultations for a period of time.”

In response, the Turkish government summoned Israel’s Consul General in Istanbul Yossi Levi Safri and asked him to leave the country.

Turkey had already recalled its ambassadors to Tel Aviv and Washington in the wake of the inauguration of the US embassy in Jerusalem al-Quds on Monday.

In June 2016, Israel and Turkey reached an agreement on the normalization of their relations six years after an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound Turkish aid flotilla killed 10 Turkish activists in high seas and sent their ties spiraling into a cycle of tensions in May 2010.
