Bulent Yildirim, the head of the Turkish IHH humanitarian relief foundation, has asserted that his organization prepares for more sea and land convoys to break the unjust siege on Gaza Strip, revealing “many surprises” to come in the coming three months.
Yildirim statements were voiced during a meeting with Muslim youths from Indonesia, France, Germany, Palestine, and other countries participating in the IHH activities in Ankara.
“We know that the Zionist media is strong, and thus we will deal with it accordingly”, Yildirim told the youths.
Meanwhile, the city of Istanbul witnessed broad and marathon meetings for international lawyers from more than 25 countries planning to file lawsuits against the Israeli officials involved in the massacre aboard the Mavi Marmara ship that was carrying humanitarian aid to the besieged people of Gaza Strip last May.
The Turkish Head of the lawyers’ team Ramadhan Turk told the PIC they would urge the international courts to prosecute the Israeli criminals who killed and wounded tens of activists on the ship, stressing that the Israeli crimes must be documented for the next generations to see how “ugly, savage, and blood-thirsty was the Zionist entity”.
At least nine Turkish citizens were killed and scores others from different countries were seriously and moderately wounded when fully-geared Israeli navy soldiers attacked the freedom flotilla and stopped activists on board from pursuing their way to the besieged Gaza Strip.
