Turkey 'threatens' Israel with legal action after army uses Gaza hospital as base MikeRivero

Turkey on Tuesday threatened to take Israel to international courts after images shared online showed Gaza’s only specialised cancer hospital used as a military base.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday it is not possible for NATO to continue its partnership with the Israeli administration.

"Until comprehensive, sustainable peace is established in Palestine, attempts at cooperation with Israel within NATO will not be approved by Turkey," Erdogan said at a news conference at the NATO summit.

Riots erupted across northern Syria and throughout Turkey on Monday, fuelled by Turkish anti-Syrian sentiment.

The Turkish military has advanced 15 kilometers deep into Iraqi Kurdistan, targeting the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and forcing the evacuation of hundreds of villages, according to a conflict monitor's report on Sunday.

I'm sick and tired of filtering through the crap posted by so called members who have figured out how to post garbage on the main feed of this website.  As a longtime user of the website trying to help counter the corporate-psychopath propaganda I really just can't stand the useless posts by those members who DO NOT respect that this website belongs to Mike and Claire.  I hate every one of you and if we ever meet in person I will firmly express myself by placing my boot as far up your ass as possible to let you know how unwelcome your contributions have been!

Turkey's Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan said Ankara has received intelligence reports that indicated Cyprus had become a military base for operations in Gaza. 

“We constantly see in intelligence that the Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus is a base for certain countries in operations targeting Gaza,” he said during an interview broadcast by Haberturk on Monday.

“When we brought this to the agenda, our European counterparts suddenly declared it a logistics base.”
