Erdoğan’s Gaza visit ‘historic’, preparations underway: Hamas prime minister

 

Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh(photo) described Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s prospective visit as “historic”, adding that the Hamas government had already started the preparations. “We will host Erdoğan as Turkey and the Turkish people deserve,” Haniyeh was quoted as saying by Anatolia news agency.

Haniyeh also argued that Erdoğan had frustrated Washington’s efforts to prevent the visit. “The attitude shown by Erdoğan proves that the tutorship of the United States has come to an end,” he said.
