Iranian, Turkish Presidents Discuss Situation in Palestine over Phone

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan held a telephone conversation on Monday, addressing the ongoing situation in Palestine.

Among the main topics of this phone call were the rising tensions in the conflict between the Palestinian resistance and the Israeli regime, as well as the steps to be taken for de-escalation measures.

According to the Turkish Communications Directorate, Erdogan emphasized the significance of promptly resolving the conflicts for the sake of regional and global peace, as well as efforts to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza.

The Israel-Palestine conflict has now entered its tenth day, marked by Israeli bombardment and a blockade of the Gaza Strip. Over 1 million people in Gaza, nearly half of the total population, have been displaced as reported by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.

Gaza is grappling with a dire humanitarian crisis, characterized by severe shortages of electricity, water, food, fuel, and medical supplies. Civilians are fleeing to the south in response to Israeli evacuation warnings regarding northern areas.

On October 7, the Palestinian resistance group Hamas initiated the Al-Aqsa Storm operation, a surprise attack involving rocket launches and infiltrations into occupied territories through various means, as retaliation for the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque by the Israeli regime’s forces and increased settler violence.

In response, the Israeli military launched Operation Swords of Iron, targeting civilian targets within the Gaza Strip.

The death toll among Palestinians due to Israeli airstrikes in Gaza has risen to 2,750, including 750 children.
