Hamas denounces any form of normalization with 'Israel'
Hamas denies all reports about its support of Turkey and the Israeli occupation exchanging ambassadors, underlining its rejection of all forms of normalization.
Palestinian resistance faction Hamas denied on Friday reports circulated by news outlets about the movement issuing a statement voicing its support for Turkey and the Israeli occupation exchanging ambassadors.
The resistance movement responded to the false reports by issuing a statement underlining that it rejects all forms of normalization with the Israeli occupation, including the exchange of ambassadors.
Following years of strained relations between Turkey and the Israeli occupation, Prime Minister Yair Lapid announced Wednesday that his government would restore full diplomatic ties with Ankara.
The announcement came less than two weeks after the Israeli occupation launched a brutal aggression on Gaza which left at least 49 martyrs, including 16 children.
Relations between Turkey and "Israel" deteriorated due to the occupation’s policies toward Palestinians, culminating in the withdrawal of both countries' ambassadors in 2018.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was considered by some a vocal supporter of the Palestinian cause.
However, he has been lately reaching out to "Israel", aiming to repair relations as Turkey's official inflation rate was at a 20-year-high in April, which posed a significant challenge to Erdogan's government.
It is worth noting that the talks between Erdogan and his Israeli counterpart Isaac Herzog took place amid a widespread Israeli crackdown on Palestinians during the holy month of Ramadan.
Ironically, Erdogan decides to open his country's doors to the Israeli occupation to quench Turkey’s thirst for investors, turning a blind eye to the ongoing murder of Palestinians and the endless violations of human rights.
