We will not remain silent against the Israel attacks. We will stand side by side with the Gazan people as we have always done. We will initiate a new aid campaign and initially send medication and foodstuff to Gaza. The people of Gaza need help. We are calling on Turkish people to extend their help. We should prove to the world that Gazans are not deserted."
