Turkish ambassador: Palestinian blood is expensive and Israel must stop violating it

Friday, 04 December 2015

“Israel must know that the blood of the Palestinian people is expensive”, Mustafa Sarnic, the Turkish ambassador to the Palestinian Authority (PA), said, noting that Tel Aviv’s policies prompted Palestinians to rise up to “defend” Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Sarnic stressed the need to fully remove the blockade of the Gaza Strip and called on Islamic countries to stand alongside the Palestinians.

In his statements to Felesteen newspaper, Sarnic added that the Israeli side must stop its violations against Palestinian people.

He added that Al-Aqsa Mosque “belongs to all Muslims and is holy land.”

“Palestine is the land from which the heavenly journey of Muhammed (pbuh) began and the first direction of prayer for Muslims, so everyone, not just Turkey but all Islamic countries, must stand alongside Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem and the Palestinian people as we always do.”

With regards to the Israeli blockade, Sarnic said: “The blockade imposed on the Palestinian people must be completely lifted, especially in the Gaza Strip.”
