Earlier this week, Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey, lambasted the US for sending a provider strike group nearer to Israel, claiming that it will end in “serious massacres” in Gaza.
U.S. Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin declared on Sunday that the nation will transfer a provider strike group, which incorporates the USS Gerald R. Ford, nearer to Israel in response to a sudden assault by Hamas militants on Israel on Saturday.
“What will the aircraft carrier of the U.S. do near Israel, why do they come? What will boats around and aircraft on it will do? They will hit Gaza and around, and take steps for serious massacres there,” Erdogan mentioned in a joint press convention with Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer in Ankara.
Erdogan has already acknowledged that Turkey is ready to behave as a peacemaker between the Israeli and Palestinian forces.
The battle happens as Turkey, which has supported a two-state answer to the difficulty, harboured Hamas militants, and supported Palestinians up to now, makes an attempt to fix relations with Israel following years of hostility.
