Earlier, Erdogan said that Western countries bear part of the responsibility for the humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip. He linked this to the fact that they do not call for a ceasefire.

Turkey wants to declare Israel a war criminal – Earlier Erdogan mentioned Ankara's intention to declare Israel a war criminal. According to him, the relevant work is already underway. "Israel, how did you end up here? How did you get here? You are an occupier. Every country has the right to defend itself, but where is justice?

This deepens the humanitarian crisis and the Jewish state must stop the attacks, he assured.  The Saudi Foreign Ministry also pointed out that any ground operations in the Gaza Strip are unacceptable as they threaten the lives of civilians. "The Kingdom warns of the dangers of continuing these blatant and unjustified violations of international law against the brotherly Palestinian people, as well as the serious consequences they will have on stability in the world and the region," the foreign ministry said in a statement.

We created and funded Bin Laden when he was fighting our eternal enemy Russia in Afghanistan. Then we blamed him for 9/11 and waged war for over a decade against him and the Taliban. Libya was the most prosperous country in Africa, but Ghaddafi didn’t toe the line with our Deep State, so he became our new enemy and was swiftly dispatched, leaving Libya a lawless hellhole.
