Israeli Consulate in Turkey Defends Campaign On Gaza
“Israel yesterday launched an operation to end missile and rocket attacks, which started June 12 by Hamas in Gaza. The aim is to stop Hamas attacks to save citizens from the circle of fire and provide them safety and peace,” the written statement said.
It accuses Hamas of not showing restraint in the escalation and putting both Israeli and Palestinian lives at risk. The statement also rejected claims that Israel has placed an embargo on the Hamas-controlled enclave.
