Emine Erdoğan, the First Lady of Türkiye, made the statement: “On the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, we appeal to the global conscience again; we demand not a temporary ceasefire, but an immediate permanent and sustainable peace for pregnant women, newborn babies and all civilians facing massacre.”
First Lady Erdogan conveyed the following messages in her social media post:
“Today, we stand in solidarity with the innocent people in Gaza, who lay their heads upon the earth as their pillow and the heavens above serve as their sole coverlet. We stand with Palestine’s struggle for freedom.
No one will ever be entirely secure anywhere in the world so long as innocents continue to be brutally murdered for an unjust cause.
We once again appeal to the conscience of the international community on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People; we demand an immediate, permanent, and sustainable peace for pregnant women, newborn babies, and all civilians who are being massacred, rather than a temporary ceasefire.
Those who oppose oppression regardless of its perpetrator, as well as those who value brotherhood and mercy over harbouring grudges and animosity, ought to know that they are not alone.
Regardless of the situation, Türkiye will consistently support the innocent and oppressed, and will strive to deliver humanitarian aid to Gaza. And I am convinced that ultimately, humanity will prevail.”
