    ISTANBUL, (PIC)-- Turkish premier Recep Erdogan strongly denounced Israel for not respecting the UN resolutions and its persistence in violating the Lebanese airspace and territorial waters, and bombing the Gaza Strip.

    In a news conference held in Ankara in the presence of his Lebanese counterpart Saad Al-Hariri, Erdogan accused Israel of threatening international peace.

    “We can never remain silent in the face of Israel's attitude … It has disproportionate power and it is using that at will while refusing to abide by U.N. resolutions. We can never accept this picture," Erdogan said. "These steps threaten global peace."

    He also slammed Israel for killing three Palestinians during an air strike on Gaza Sunday.

    “What is your excuse this time? Do you claim that they fire rockets? We are watching the situation and there was no rocket firing,” the Turkish premier underlined.

    AL-KHALIL, (PIC)-- MP Dr. Mahmoud Al-Ramahi, the secretary of the Palestinian legislative council, lauded the "daring and honorable" stands of Turkish premier Recep Erdogan.

    He mentioned in particular Erdogan's condemnation of the Israeli crimes against civilians in Gaza Strip and his demand that Israel should abide by the international law and implement UN resolutions.

    Oh no, not international law and UN resolutions. There is something you never hear in the fake peace talks.
