Turkish FM to visit Gaza Tuesday

Turkey's Davutoglu to visit Gaza Tuesday
AFP , Monday 19 Nov 2012

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu will pay a visit Tuesday to the
Gaza Strip, which has been battered by a deadly Israeli air bombardment in
six days of violence between Israel and Palestinian militants, the foreign
ministry said.

Davutoglu's trip is part of an Arab League initiative, the Anatolia news
agency said, referring to a planned visit Tuesday by a delegation from the
bloc and its leader Nabil al-Arabi in a show of support for Gaza. A Turkish
foreign ministry spokesman confirmed the visit to AFP but gave no further
details.

Davutoglu, who has branded the Israeli military offensive in Gaza a "crime
against humanity", agreed on the visit during a meeting with Hamas leader
Khaled Meshaal in Cairo on Sunday, Anatolia said. Turkey has fallen out with
its former regional ally Israel after Israeli commandos raided a Gaza-bound
Turkish ship in May 2010, leaving nine people dead.

Ninety Palestinians have been killed in Israeli strikes on the impoverished
Gaza Strip since violence erupted on Wednesday. Three people have been
killed in Israel by Palestinian rocket fire.
