QA-12, 2 December 2023, Statement of the Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Öncü Keçeli in Response to a Question Regarding a Social Media Message Posted by the Israeli Foreign Minister

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 02.12.2023

As the history of the conflict shows, the more Israel oppresses Palestinians and destroys their basic freedoms, the more resistance it will face as many more Palestinians will continue to seek the realization of their collective and individual rights.

At the core of the current problem lies Israeli occupation, as well as its expansionist mentality and repressive actions that completely ignores law, human rights and universal principles.

Brute force against an entire civilian population by an occupying power cannot be legitimized as self-defense.
