Davutoglu: Israeli oppressors cannot defeat the Palestinians

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that by using oppression, Israel will not achieve its intended goals in Gaza and Palestine because "nothing is stronger than a nation revolting for the sake of justice," Anadolu news agency reported.

Speaking during a Ramadan iftar ceremony on Sunday, Davutoglu said that ever since the start of the latest escalation, he has been making "intensive contacts" with the different Arab and international parties for the sake of stopping the Israeli aggression.

He hailed the Palestinian people, saying they are "brave and unbreakable in the face of Israel's aggression".

"The unjust Israelis will be held accountable and punished in this life and in the afterlife," Davutoglu said, adding that, "The day will come when Palestinians regain their rights and bring their oppressors to justice."

He also reaffirmed that Turkey will continue to stand "day and night" with the Palestinian people and their struggle.

Over the past two weeks, Israel has been waging a massive military campaign against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, killing more than 500 people and injuring thousands.
