President of Turkey at a rally in support of Palestine stated that official Ankara intends to declare Israel a "war criminal." The key points from Erdogan's statement today are:

"Israel, how did you end up here? How did you get here? You are an occupier. You are a group, not a state. The West owes you, but Turkey does not owe you."

"When I said that HAMAS is not a terrorist organization, Israel didn't like it at all. That's why I said it. What did you expect?"

"Those who shed 'crocodile tears' for the innocent civilians killed yesterday in the Ukrainian-Russian war are silently watching the deaths of thousands of innocent children in the Gaza Strip today."

"Hey, West, I'm addressing you! Do you want a war between the cross and the crescent? Then know this, this nation is alive, this nation stands firmly. Who we were in Libya, who we were in Karabakh, we will be the same in the Middle East."

"The real masters of the game in the region are those who 'allow antics' by Israeli authorities. Israel can't make a move without considering them."

"The West bears responsibility for what is happening in the Gaza Strip right now."

"The decision has been made to recall Israeli diplomats from Turkey. Relations with this country will be reviewed," the Israeli Foreign Ministry stated in response to Erdogan's speech.
