Trkiye is ‘extremely concerned’ over Israel’s accelerating attacks on Rafah after causing destruction and massacres in the Gaza Strip, the Foreign Ministry said on Monday.

‘We are extremely concerned by Israel’s escalating attacks on the southern city of Rafah following the destruction and massacres it has already inflicted on the Gaza Strip,’ the ministry said in a statement.

‘We consider this operation as part of a plan to expel the people of Gaza from their own land,’ it added.

It also noted that continued assaults will worsen the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and hinder the endeavors to achieve a long-term cease-fire in the region.

‘We call on the international community, in particular the UN Security Council, to take the necessary steps to stop Israel,’ the statement concluded.
