Palestinian envoy says Turkey extended realistic support for Gazans
Palestinian ambassador in Turkey said the death toll from Israel's offensive on Gaza had reached 1,300 as more than six thousand Gazans had been wounded.
"Right now the situation is very bad. The death toll has reached 1,300 and the number of our martyrs might rise as bodies have begun to be pulled out from under devastated buildings. The number of the wounded is well above six thousand," Nabil Maroof told reporters on Monday.
Maroof thanked for "realistic support by Turkey for Palestinians living in Gaza", saying that Turkey had sent humanitarian aid and it had provided medical treatment to the wounded Palestinians.
"The Turkish government has extended great support. On behalf of the Palestinians, I would also like to convey my gratitude to the Turkish people for their support," Maroof said.
