QA-11, 7 May 2024, Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Öncü Keçeli in Response to a Question Regarding the Latest Developments in Gaza

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 07.05.2024

We welcomed the acceptance by the Palestinian side of the latest proposal for ceasefire in Gaza and the mutual release of hostages and prisoners.

Amid such a positive development towards ending the destruction and massacre in Gaza, Israel's increased attacks on Rafah have once again shown that the Netanyahu Government is not acting in good faith.

An offensive on Rafah will affect not only the region but the whole world. Israel must immediately withdraw from the Gaza side of the Rafah border crossing. The status quo in Rafah and at the border crossing must be restored without further delay.

Atatürk
