- ‘Blood on Your Hands’: Turkey’s Erdogan Attacks Biden Over Alleged Israeli Arms Deal Amid Ongoing Gaza Strikes
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has launched a blistering attack on his US counterpart Joe Biden’s alleged support for ongoing Israeli attacks on Gaza amid reports of a large new arms deal between Washington and Tel Aviv.
Erdogan’s criticism of Biden came after unconfirmed reports by the Washington Post on Monday that the US president’s administration has approved a $735 million arms deal with Israel. “Today we saw Biden’s signature on weapons sales to Israel,” the Turkish leader said after chairing a cabinet meeting.
“Mr. Biden, you have sided with the Armenians on the so-called Armenian Genocide. Now you are, unfortunately, writing history with blood on your hands in this incident that led to a seriously out-of-proportion attack in Gaza,” he added.
