The “Freedom Convoy for Palestine” has arrived in Ankara.
A program was organised in line with the convoy in Hacı Bayram Veli University North Ankara campus, Ankara. IHH Ankara branch President Hacı Bayram Şahin gave the opening speech, followed IHH Chairman Bülent yıldırım who stated that “We will always support the Gazan people who are now attacked by Israel”.
Yıldırım indicated that the destination is Incirlik base in Adana and their aim was to give a message to the world’s nations.
Yıldırm said that American lands are invaded by the Zionist and there are more than 800 American military bases in the world, as if the country wishes to occupy the whole world.
Yıldırım announced IHH’s launch of a ship campaign and said “Mr. President! The expectation of our people is that if necessary, we would be sending aid by our ship alongside the navy and bring the injured to Türkiye on a floating hospital ship.”
Yıldırım invited everyone to the Incirlik base - which is used by the US to help Israel attack Gaza – to end its operation, and he added that both Kürecik and İncirlik bases must be shut down.
Religious Affairs Presidency Advisor Abdurrezzak also made an appeal to the public to boycott brands and institutions that support Israel.
