Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday that his country will do "everything possible" to hold the "barbaric" Israeli Occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accountable over yesterday’s deadly strike on a Rafah tent camp that killed and injured dozens.

"We will do everything possible to hold these barbarians and murderers accountable who have nothing to do with humanity," Erdogan said.

The IOF claimed that it targeted a senior Hamas official in what it said was a “precise airstrike”.

The Palestinian presidency said that the deliberate targeting by the IOF of the displaced people tent camp in Rafah constitutes a “massacre that surpasses all limits,” calling for urgent intervention to immediately stop these crimes targeting the Palestinian people.

Hamas stated that this heinous crime is further evidence of the genocide committed by the Israeli Occupation and its army against the Palestinians, while simultaneously claiming to take sufficient measures to protect civilians. This necessitates all countries, organizations, and entities worldwide to implement the rulings of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and take urgent action to immediately stop the shedding of innocent civilian blood, including children, women, and the elderly.
