US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday that the international community should “teach Israel a strong lesson in deterrence” as punishment for excessive Palestinian rocket attacks, Breitbart reported.
The Turkish President’s Liaison Office said the two leaders spoke on the phone about the escalation of the conflict.
The statement said that Erdogan stressed the need for “the international community to teach Israel a strong and deterrent lesson” and called on the UN Security Council to intervene quickly with “strong and clear messages” to Israel.
The statement said that Erdogan invited Putin to consider creating an international force to protect the Palestinians, despite the fact that Israel itself is undergoing rocket fire from Hamas.
