On their Friday editions, all of the Turkish dailies provided wide coverage of developments regarding Erdogan's harsh statements on the latest massacre in the Egyptian crackdown on pro-Morsi sit-ins, his condemnation over the approach of the western world to the incidents and the call to United Nations Security Council to act and gather.  

Regarding the incidents of early Wednesday, where Egyptian security forces moved in to disperse supporters of the deposed President Mohamed Morsi who have been camped out in capital Cairo's Rabaa al-Adawiya square and in Giza's Nahda Square since his July 3 ouster, Erdogan's blast on West was highly covered on the Turkish dailies.  

The dailies SABAH, VATAN, TURKIYE AND YENI SAFAK gave a full front-page coverage to Erdogan's statements on the violence in Egypt.

Daily Sabah headlined the quote "One Moses reveals and calls to account", what Erdogan used Thursday to describe the future of the doers of the Egypt's massacre over the crackdown in the country. Daily VATAN quoted Erdogan, "The Egyptian people will gain their rights sooner or later. One day those pharoes will face a Moses who would end the tyranny," who stated that the ones who believed in martyrdom will gain their rights. 

Daily TURKIYE said, "Harsh Response to West: Who will believe in you anymore?" referring to Erdogan's statement on that the hands of those, who have not called the incidents in Egypt as 'coup', are full of blood of Egypt's children. On the other hand, daily YENI SAFAK headlined "Big conspiracy set up against the Islamic world", adding Erdogan's saying that Turkey was included amongst the targets, for nobody wanted the existence of a strong Turkey. 

On the other hand, some dailies also covered Obama's announcement that US cancelled their joint military drill with Egypt, giving his sayings that it could not be continued while people were killed. Daily TURKIYE stated Obama's "Complain for humanity" call as headline, where he said civil society foundations and lawyers could litigate to the court to make International criminal court and United Nations move against the coup doers including Defense Minister Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.  

Built by a Turkish construction company GAP, Turkmenistan's largest port project, "Turkmenbashi International Sea Port" was another subject covered on some dailies. Daily SABAH headlined "Turkish port along with Caspian sea" mentioning the groundbreaking ceremony, which was held on Thursday with the participation of Erdogan,  President of Turkmenistan Gurbanguly Berdymohamedov, ministers, member of parliaments of the two countries and the Chairman of Calik Holding.
