Main opposition CHP head calls for international isolation of Israel
Turkey's main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) on Wednesday called for international isolation of Israel if it continues its "policy of massacres."
"Israel should be isolated on international sphere if it continues its policy of massacres and if it continues extending illegal settlements on Palestinian lands," said a statement issued by CHP's press branch on Wednesday.
The statement also said that Israel's oppression against Palestinian people is a crime against humanity.
"We should carry into effect our solidarity with Palestinian people in the strongest ways today as Turkey," it added.
At least 62 Palestinians were martyred and thousands more injured by Israeli forces along the Gaza border Monday.
Thousands of Palestinians had gathered on Gaza Strip's eastern border Monday to take part in protests aimed to commemorate the Nakba anniversary and protest the relocation of the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Since the border rallies began on March 30, more than 100 Palestinian demonstrators have been martyred by cross-border Israeli gunfire, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry.
Last week, the Israeli government said the ongoing border protests constituted a "state of war" in which international humanitarian law did not apply.
