At NATO summit, Erdogan calls for sanctions on Israel, slams US support against Hamas

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has said US President Joe Biden and his administration are complicit in what he alleges are Israeli war crimes and violations of international law during in the Gaza conflict, and he calls for sanctions against Israel.

In an interview with Newsweek during the NATO summit in Washington, Erdogan says Israel’s “brutal murder” of civilians, and its strikes on hospitals, aid centers and elsewhere constitute war crimes, without mentioning his ally Hamas or the terror group’s use of such facilities for military purposes.

“The US administration, however, disregards these violations and provides Israel with the most support. They do so at the expense of being complicit in these violations,” Erdogan is quoted as saying.

“At this juncture, who will impose what kind of sanction against Israel for violating international law? That is the real question and no one is answering that,” he days.
