’Israel’, Turkey Deal Trick by Erdogan: PA Official

A Palestinian Authority official described Turkey’s normalization of ties with the Zionist entity as a trick by which Ankara and Tel Aviv were using Gaza to serve their interests.
Israeli daily Jerusalem Post, quoted the Palestinian official as saying that ” “Israel and Erdogan’s Islamic party are the only ones who will be served by this agreement.”Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
He accused Erdogan of ignoring diplomatic rules between friends and completely ignoring the Palestinian Authority.
“Israel will find excuses to cancel the rebuilding of Gaza, meaning that the final result of the deal as far as the Palestinians are concerned will be zero,” the source said.
“The Turkish president wanted to get Ankara out of its international isolation, which was caused by his policies. It was sad to see him chase after Israel in order to secure a weak deal.”
The senior official said that there is unlikely to be any movement from Palestinian resistance group Hamas on the issue of captive Israelis in Gaza as a result of the agreement, because Hamas wishes to improve ties with Egypt and Cairo is more likely to take a leading role on the issue.
“Hamas will try to play this deal to its benefit,” he surmised. “However, it will turn out to be a political trick in which Erdogan is using the Gaza Strip.”
JP also quoted a member of the Democratic Front’s political bureau, Talal Abu Zarifa, as saying that the deal “gets Israel out of being internationally isolated because of its crimes against the Palestinian people.”
Abu Zarifa said that the deal would help Israel fight the boycott against it. “Turkey preferred its own political interests regarding the war on terrorism over ending the blockade of the Gaza Strip.”
