Israel continued its offensive in the besieged Gaza Strip on Wednesday (May 12th). At the same time, Israeli forces have continued operations there. Russia has called for an immediate end to all repression in Palestine. China has called on the country to refrain from any loss of life or property.
Al Jazeera reported this information in a report on Wednesday (May 12).
Gaza health officials say the death toll from the Israeli attack has risen to 48. Among them are 14 children and three women. More than three hundred innocent Palestinians have been injured in Israeli attacks in the past few days.
Meanwhile, Israeli Defense Minister Beni Gantz has announced that there are no immediate plans to end the offensive in the Gaza Strip.
He says the Israeli military will continue to strike and bring about complete silence in the long run. Jonathan Conricus, a spokesman for the Israeli military, said he thought the fighting would intensify.
Asked about reports that Hamas might call for a ceasefire, the Israeli official said: “I don’t think my commanders know, or are interested in.
Meanwhile, a statement from the Turkish president’s office said on Wednesday that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin had spoken by telephone about the besieged Gaza Strip and the Israeli attack on Jerusalem.
In a telephone conversation with Putin, the Turkish president strongly protested the Israeli attacks on mosques in Jerusalem, Gaza and Al-Aqsa. He says the international community must stop Israel and “counter-teach.”
Ankara has already begun work on the issue, the statement said.
The Turkish president has called for international peacekeepers to be sent to the region to protect the Palestinians. Of course, Turkey has been coming up with this proposal since 2016.
