Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan calls on members of the United Nations Security Council, particularly the United States, to pressure Israel into a ceasefire in Gaza after the Council backed a US proposal earlier this week.

Speaking in Madrid alongside Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Erdogan says Ankara welcomes any ceasefire proposals that will end the Gaza war, adding that Washington’s stance on Israel’s operations there is “truly upsetting” Turkey.
