Turkey suggests to deploy UN forces on Israel’s border with Gaza
Ankara will make diplomatic efforts directed towards prompt ceasefire and removal of Israel's blockade on Gaza Strip. Turkey proposes to place the forces of the United Nations and observers mainly from different Arab countries on the border of Israel with Gaza sector. According to the concept of the diplomatic initiative by Ankara, these forces must take responsibility for control on the intersection of border, and also on delivery of humanitarian aid to Gaza. Furthermore, Turkey considers that different Palestinian groups need to end the debates between themselves, and Organization of the Islamic Conference member states and the international community - to take responsibility for the restoration of Gaza Strip.
Tyurkie newspaper reported that the plan was approved by the President of Turkey Abdullah Gul after discussions with the Foreign Minister Ali Babajan and with other high-ranking officials of the country.
Earlier Gul criticized the military operation of Israel with respect to Gaza Strip and named it "pitiless". In its turn, the Foreign Ministry of Turkey described unacceptable the ground operation of Israel. Mass protests against the Israeli aggression take place in different regions of Turkey.
