Abbas to Erdogan: Do not provide Gaza with aid unless through the PA
RAMALLAH, (PIC)– The Palestinian Authority (PA) announced its refusal of supplying Gaza with Turkish humanitarian aid unless it is done through the PA government in Ramallah. This came after the Israeli-Turkish reconciliation agreement which involves providing Gaza with Turkish aid. The PA’s Minister of foreign Affairs Riyad al-Malki welcomed, in a statement on Monday, the Turkish efforts in Gaza Strip but pointed to the request of the PA’s President Mahmoud Abbas asking his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan to get that done by absolute coordination with al-Hamdallah’s government. Israel and Turkey officially declared reaching a deal to return back to the normalization of bilateral relations. The deal allowed offering Turkish humanitarian aid to Gaza Strip which has been under Israeli siege for over 10 years.
