Turkey’s Erdogan to pope: Israel should be sanctioned over Gaza ‘massacre’

ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan urges Pope Francis to help end what he called Israel’s “massacre” of Palestinians, which should be punished with sanctions, his office says.

Erdogan tells the pope in a call that “Palestinians will continue to be subjected to a massacre unless the international community punishes Israel… with sanctions,” adding that the pope’s messages were of “great importance to mobilize the Christian world and the international community.”
