Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Tuesday condemned a deadly airstrike on a hospital in the Gaza Strip as “the latest example of Israeli attacks devoid of the most basic human values,” in a message on social media, Agence France-Presse reported.
“I invite all humanity to take action to stop this unprecedented brutality in Gaza,” Erdoğan said on social media platform X, formerly Twitter.
The health ministry in the Hamas-run Palestinian territory said Israeli airstrikes on the hospital compound sheltering displaced people had killed at least 200 people.
Erdoğan accused Israel of “striking a hospital sheltering women, children and innocent civilians.”
Turkey’s foreign ministry also condemned “these barbaric attacks in the strongest terms,” in a statement.
A large crowd of protesters gathered outside the Israeli embassy in Ankara and the consulate in İstanbul, shouting: “Allahu Akbar” (God is the greatest), local media reported.
