Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan receives China’s special envoy on Middle East issue, Zhai Jun, in capital Ankara
urkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan and China’s special envoy for the Middle East issue on Monday discussed the latest developments in the Gaza Strip.
Fidan received Zhai Jun at the ministry in the capital Ankara, according to Turkish diplomatic sources.
Held behind closed doors, the discussion also covered a range of regional issues, the sources added.
Israel has been carrying out relentless air and ground attacks on the Gaza Strip — including on hospitals, residences, and houses of worship — since the Palestinian group Hamas launched a cross-border attack last month.
The attacks have killed over 11,000 Palestinians, including more than 8,000 women and children. The Israeli death toll, meanwhile, stands at 1,200 after a downward revision.
