After the confirmation of the deaths of three sons and even four grandchildren of Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh in the Israeli airstrike, reactions from some important political figures around the world followed. One of the first to react to this horrific act by the IDF was Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish president, who has been one of the most persistent supporters of Palestine and their struggle for freedom since the beginning of the war in Palestine. During a meeting, the Turkish president expressed his condolences to Haniyeh, emphasizing that Israel will be held accountable for what they have done. He stressed that Israel should be condemned for crimes against humanity.

According to information released by the media yesterday, Haniyeh's sons and grandchildren were killed during Israel's airstrike on the Gaza Strip. The Hamas leader is currently not in Gaza due to security reasons and is in Qatar with other important Hamas figures. Haniyeh immediately showed remarkable composure upon receiving such news, emphasizing that he will continue his fight for the independence and freedom of his people. 

Ismail Haniyeh reacts

He believes that Israel's attack demonstrates the brutality of their army and their intentions. Haniyeh stated that this is a criminal act, and that the Israeli army does not respect the norms and standards of war.

The Hamas leader has no intention of giving up his struggle for freedom and independence. On the contrary, such events will further motivate him to persist in his fight for his people. The Palestinian people are in a difficult situation at the moment, and it seems that the situation has never been this chaotic. Despite the efforts of world leaders, there are still no signs of peace coming anytime soon.

Erdogan has been trying for months to do something to influence the leaders of both countries and stop this conflict, but despite his efforts, it's difficult to create peace where peace has long been absent. Readiness for compromise must be the primary focus in negotiations. It seems that there is none of that at this moment.
