October 22, 2023: The Israel-Palestine conflict requires a new guarantee mechanism, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said on Saturday.
Addressing the Cairo Peace Summit in Egypt, Fidan said the Israel-Palestine conflict requires a new guarantee mechanism and it is necessary to guarantee steps taken by parties for just peace, reports Anadolu Agency.
Türkiye will never allow the sufferings of Palestinians to continue, he added.
He said that if Israeli attacks were to continue, these attacks would threaten global stability and peace with geographical escalation.
The summit, held with international, Arab and UN participation, is discussing the unfolding situation in Gaza, the future of the Palestinian cause and the peace process.
The conflict in Gaza began when Hamas initiated Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, a multi-pronged surprise attack that included a barrage of rocket launches and infiltrations into Israel by land, sea, and air. It said the incursion was in retaliation for the storming of the Al-Aqsa Mosque and growing violence by Israeli settlers.
The Israeli military then launched Operation Swords of Iron against Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip, along with stepping up raids and arrests in the occupied West Bank.
