Palestinian Resistance condemns Israeli visit to Ankara
The Palestinian Resistance Committee rejects all forms of normalization.
The Palestinian Resistance Committees' media office denounced in a press statement "the reception of the criminal Zionist entity's head," Isaac Herzog, in Turkey.
The committees said that "receiving the Zionist president in Turkey amid the escalation of Zionist aggression and terrorism against all Palestinian society and their sanctities, is rejected and condemned."
They affirmed their rejection of "all forms of normalization, communication, and connection with the criminal Zionist enemy."
Israeli occupation’s President Isaac Herzog landed in Ankara, on Wednesday, to meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in the first visit by an Israeli president since 2007.
Ahead of his trip, Herzog told reporters that "We will not agree on everything, and the relationship between Israel and Turkey has certainly known ups and downs and not-so-simple moments in recent years."
"But we shall try to restart our relations and build them in a measured and cautious manner, and with mutual respect between our states," he added.
The two-day trip's main agenda item will most likely be gas sales to Europe, a topic that has taken on added importance in light of the escalating global energy crisis.
In early December 2020, Al-Monitor published a report that exposed a secret channel of talks between "Israel" and Turkey with the aim of improving relations between them.
It is noteworthy that after a six-year dispute due to the Israeli attack on the Turkish Freedom Fleet in May 2010, the two sides resumed normal relations in June 2016.
