Turkish Deputy PM: Turkey announces three days of mourning for Gaza victims

Turkey on Monday declared three days of national mourning for the Palestinian victims of Israel's military operation in the Gaza Strip, denouncing the assault as a "massacre".


"We condemn Israel's massacre of the Palestinian people," Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc told reporters in Ankara in televised comments after a cabinet meeting as the Palestinian death toll topped 500.

"In a show of solidarity with the Palestinian people, three days of mourning have been declared starting from tomorrow Tuesday."
