Erdogan terms Hamas 'National Resistance of Palestine'

TEHRAN, Apr. 27 (MNA) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has described Hamas as the Palestinian National Resistance who defend their homeland against occupiers.

"We cannot be among those who falsely accuse Hamas of being a terrorist organization just because Israel and its Western supporters want it so,” President Erdogan said, adding, “We will continue to see our Hamas brothers, who defend their homeland against occupiers, as the National Resistance of Palestine.”

Erdogan reiterated that Turkey will continue its efforts for the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state, Anadolu Agency reported.

Erdogan further said that by using the Oct.7 attack by Hamas as an excuse, no one can “justify killing newborn babies in incubators, raining bombs on civilians, killing people waiting in line for a loaf of bread, deliberately targeting mosques, churches, schools, and hospitals, turning Gaza into a massive graveyard, and not adhering to the minimum standards of international law.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Erdogan slams 'fascist' response to US student protests over Gaza.

The US police have arrested scores in many American universities in recent days as pro-Palestinian student protests spread throughout the US.

Israel waged a genocidal war on the besieged Gaza on October 7 after the Palestinian Hamas Resistance group carried out a historic operation against the occupying entity in retaliation for the regime’s intensified atrocities against the Palestinian people.

Israel has imposed a complete siege on the densely populated territory, cutting off fuel, electricity, food, and water to the more than two million Palestinians living there.
