First Lady Emine Erdogan advocates global unity for peace at 'One Heart for Palestine'

No ideology in the world is worth the life of an innocent human, First Lady Emine Erdogan said at the "One Heart for Palestine" meeting in Turkiye’s Istanbul on Wednesday.

"We will defend a global understanding that embraces human beings with compassion regardless of their religion, language, and race.  Let us continue our call for peace in vigil. The unjust occupation in Palestine must end," Erdogan said.

"A fund should be established by organizations such as the United Nations and the Organizations of Islamic Cooperation to rebuild the buildings destroyed by Israel. We must strive for lasting peace," she added.

WHAT HAPPENED

Hamas' military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, announced that they launched a comprehensive attack against Israel called "Al-Aqsa Flood" on the morning of Oct. 7.

While thousands of rockets were fired from Gaza towards Israel, armed groups entered the settlements in the region. The Israeli army also launched an attack on the Gaza Strip with dozens of warplanes. The Palestinian Ministry of Health in Gaza announced that Israel killed 11, 180 people, including 4,506 children, 3,027 women, and 397 elderly people. It injured at least 32,000 people in its attacks on Gaza.

It was reported that 1,200 Israelis, including 324 soldiers, were killed and 5,132 Israelis were wounded in the attacks from Gaza.

In the occupied West Bank, 106 Palestinians were killed in attacks by Israeli forces and Jewish settlers. In Israel’s attacks on Gaza, 48 journalists were killed.

In the clashes between the Israeli army and Hezbollah on the Israel-Lebanon border since Oct. 8, 55 Hezbollah members and 4 civilians, one of whom was a journalist, were killed. Three Israeli soldiers and one Israeli civilian were killed in the attacks organized by Lebanon.
