Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan slammed Israel during his speech at UN General Assembly in Tuesday, questioning its borders and disclosing its expansionist aims.
“The Palestinian territory under Israeli occupation has become one of the most striking places of injustice,” Erdogan said, displaying a map showing how Israeli territory grew over the years at the Palestinians’ expense.
He also highlighted the issue of the Palestinian woman executed last Wednesday when she took the wrong lane at Qalandya checkpoint in the occupied West Bank.
“She was murdered heinously,” he said.
During a meeting with Turks and Muslims in New York, he likened the Israel acts in Gaza to the Nazi treatment of the Jews during.
“We view the Holocaust in the same way we view those besieging Gaza and carrying out massacres in it,” he said.
