BAGIS CONDEMNS ATTACKS ON GAZA
AK Party Vice Chairman Egemen Bagis condemned Israel's use of excessive force on Gaza since December 27.
Bagis said, "There is no doubt, Israel's attacks on Gaza have caused grief among the Jewish citizens of Turkey. As Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said, Israel's attacks on Gaza are disrespect to Turkey from which active contribution to Middle East peace process was requested and this is a nasty blow to peace efforts"
For these reasons, he announced his resignation from the Turkish-Israeli Interparliamentary friendship group.
