Cairo and Ankara support no-fly zone over Gaza

CAIRO, (PIC)– Cairo and Ankara on Sunday declared their support for the Arab League’s decision which called on the UN security council to impose a no-fly zone on the densely-populated Gaza Strip in order to prevent Israel from striking civilians.

Egyptian minister of foreign affairs Nabil Al-Arabi said the Arab demand for a no-fly zone over Gaza is a fair request and Egypt supports it.

Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu for his part said that Israel should stop its attacks and blockade on Gaza and the international community should do its best in this regard.

“If there is any Arab proposal in this regard, Turkey will support it,” Davutoglu added.

In this context, diplomatic sources told the Palestinian information center (PIC) that the foreign ministers of Egypt and Turkey intervened and stopped Israel from waging a new devastating war on Gaza through contacting European and American parties to curb Israel from committing new war crimes.

The sources added that Davutoglu and Arabi also contacted UN officials to pressure Israel to stop its aggression against Gaza, and the officials conveyed Israel’s readiness to accept calm in Gaza, but it insists on targeting Palestinian resistance leaders.



“We ask, how many more dead corpses of Palestinian children and women does the international community need to see in order to act?”
