Turkish parl't speaker: Israel staging merciless attacks

The parliament speaker of Turkey said on Saturday that Israel was staging merciless attacks.

Turkey's Parliament Speaker Koksal Toptan said that Israel was staging merciless attacks without discriminating among children, women or civilians.

"A human tragedy is being experienced in Gaza," Toptan told reporters in the Algerian capital of Algiers where he is paying a formal visit.

Toptan said that he had invited the executive committee of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) to an extraordinary meeting on January 14th.

"I hope that we will give important messages to the world, and draw the attention of the entire world to what is going on in Gaza," he said.

Toptan also said that Turkey and Algeria had similar views on regional and international matters.

More than 700 people have been killed and around 3,000 others were injured since the beginning of Israeli offensive against Gaza on December 27, 2008.
