Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu have called for intensifying efforts to lift the Israeli siege on the Gaza Strip, stressing the need for an international investigation into the massacre committed by Israel against peace activists who were part of the “freedom flotilla” to Gaza.

The Syrian News Agency said that during their meeting in Damascus yesterday, Assad and Davutoglu stressed the need to intensify efforts to break the inhuman blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip, and the importance of achieving national reconciliation, which is a guarantee to support the struggle of the Palestinian people to recover their usurped rights.


Both parties also stressed “the need for an independent international investigation into the crime committed by” Israel “against unarmed civilians on board the freedom flotilla.”


Assad and Davutoglu agreed that the peace process in the Middle East has stalled because of the aggressive practices of the Government of the extremist Zionist state, and international support from certain powers who grant them legal immunity.
