Persian Gulf leaders, Tukey president call for end to Israel’s war on Gaza

Leaders of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have jointly condemned Israel’s aggression against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, calling for an immediate end to the carnage.

They also warned that the Israeli regime’s war on the Gaza Strip will have “dire consequences” for the entire region and the international community as well.

The leaders of the six nations of the PGCC —Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait — and President Erdogan stated at the end of the 44th session of the Council in the Qatari capital Doha, on Tuesday.

They condemned Israel’s relentless bombardment of the Gaza Strip and called for the implementation of a permanent ceasefire in the Palestinian territory, where Israeli forces have killed more than 16,000 people, 70 percent of whom were women and children, since October 7.

The leaders also warned that Israel’s war on Gaza would lead to “dire consequences for the peoples of the region and international peace and security”.

In the statement, the leaders also called on the international community to intervene to establish a permanent ceasefire.

They also agreed to help rebuild “what the Israeli war machine destroyed in its attacks on the Strip during the past years.”

Qatar’s ruling emir and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman also condemned Israel’s war crimes and called for a ceasefire, in separate remarks at the summit.
