(zaman.com) - Lebanon Prime Minister Fuad Sinyora phoned Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday, asking Turkey to help produce a ceasefire in the Middle East crisis.
Sinyora informed PM Erdogan about the latest situation in the region, warning that the situation was worsing and heading toward an unpredictable end, reports Trend.
Erdogan, for his part, pledged to do his best to contribute to the restoration of peace and order in the region.
Following the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah, Israel imposed a naval and air blockade on Lebanon. Israel also hit a Beirut airport and has killed more than 100 civilians in air attacks on Lebanese territory.
Prime Minister Erdogan had called on the UN Security Council to intervene in the Middle East crisis, recommending that the Security Council call for a ceasefire.
Erdogan had criticized Israel for using disproportionate and brutal force, underlining that nothing could justify the bombardment of civilians and the destruction of civilian targets.
