Turkey calls on Muslims to take clear stance over Gaza.

According to Reuters, Turkey’s vice president, Fuat Oktay, said on Thursday, Muslim countries must show a united and clear stance over Israel’s conflict with the Islamist Hamas movement in Gaza.

Turkey leader said the world powers are just condemning violence without acting.

“What we desire is that active measures are taken.

“There are decisions taken repeatedly at the United Nations, there are condemnations. But, unfortunately, no result has been obtained, because a clear stance is not displayed,” Oktay told reporters after morning prayers marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.

Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the U.S. president that Israel would “continue acting to strike at the military capabilities of Hamas and the other terrorist groups active in the Gaza Strip”.

Today, thousands of Israelis in Tel Aviv sent to shelters, reports said.

Hamas launched rocket barrages at southern Israel from Gaza border on Thursday.

Sirens blared in Tel Aviv overnight and the sound of rockets being shot down by Israel’s Iron Dome system filled the sky, Reuters reports.

Israel masses troops along Gaza, rocket fire, and air strikes escalated.

Isreali are preparing ground troops along the Gaza border.

At dawn on Thursday, Israel had sent several air strikes, destroying a six-storey residential building in the middle of Gaza City.

Fights erupted in the streets between Jewish Israelis and the Muslim Arab’s minority.

At least 67 Palestinians have been killed in Gaza since violence escalated on Monday.

And according to the enclave’s health ministry, 7 Isreali soldiers have been killed in Israel.

Israel is now preparing combat troops for ground operations,” a military spokesman said.
