Erdogan Threatens Israel of Hamas Members Assassinations

Sudan Events – Sumaya Sayed

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned Tel Aviv of heavy price amid reports of Israeli plot to assassinate Hamas members living outside Palestine.
“If they dare to take such a step against Türkiye and Turkish people, they will be doomed to pay a price which they cannot recover from,” Erdogan told journalists Tuesday on his return flight from a two-day Qatar trip when he was asked about a Wall Street Journal article which claimed that Israel plans to kill Hamas members living outside Palestine.
“Those who attempt such a thing should not forget that the consequences can be extremely serious. No one is unaware of Türkiye’s progress in both intelligence and security fields worldwide. Additionally, we are not a newly established state,” he stressed.
Erdogan’s warning came after Ronen Bar, the head of Israel’s Shin Bet domestic security service, said that Israel has initiated plans to carry out assassinations targeting Hamas members residing outside of Palestinian territories.
“In every place, in Gaza, in the West Bank, in Lebanon, in Türkiye, in Qatar, everywhere,” Bar said in an audio recording. “It’ll take a few years, but we will be there to do it.”
Gaza belongs to Palestinians and who will govern it will be decided by the Palestinian people, Erdogan said, condemning Israel’s plan to create a 40-km long and 12-km wide buffer zone in Gaza.
“The best thing Israel can do is to accept the establishment of an independent Palestinian State within the 1967 borders and return the occupied Palestinian territories to their rightful owners,” Erdogan said.
