Hamas welcomes Turkey decision suspending military, trade relations with Israel

GAZA, (PIC)– Hamas has welcomed Turkey’s decision to suspend military and trade relations with Israel in the wake of the latter’s refusal to apologize for its bloody attack on Freedom Flotilla last year and killing nine Turkish citizens.

Spokesman for the movement Dr. Sami Abu Zuhri said in a press release on Tuesday that Hamas fully supported this decision.

Hamas believes that Turkey’s act is an advanced step in response to the Israeli crime of killing solidarity activists on board the fleet and to the continued blockade on the Gaza Strip, he added.

The spokesman, in this regard, welcomed the reported visit of Turkish premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan to Gaza, hoping that it would take place in the near future.
