The Washington Times, an American newspaper, revealed on Monday that US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken’s trip to Jordan, Iraq, and Turkey failed to achieve any of its aims in Gaza, as the Israeli entity escalated its harsh attacks on residents.
According to a “Al-Ma’louma” report, “Blinken’s visit came after a hectic weekend of travel that took him from Israel to Jordan, the occupied West Bank, Cyprus, and Iraq to rally support for the Biden administration’s proposal regarding “humanitarian truces” for a ceasefire at a time when “Israel continues its aggression against Palestinian civilians.”
He went on to state, “Blinken expressed this disappointment by saying after the conclusion of his visit to Turkey: It seems clear that we do not agree on everything, but there are common views on some of the necessities of the moment we are in.”
He went on to say: “The US Secretary of State forgot the thousands of Palestinian victims as a result of the criminal Israeli aggression, focusing his speech only on what he called ‘hostages’ who fell into the hands of the Palestinian resistance, especially the Americans.”
According to the article, “the Turkish President refused to receive Blinken and did not meet with him.” Hundreds of protestors hoisted Turkish and Palestinian flags and chanted anti-American slogans outside the Turkish Foreign Ministry.
He went on to say, “The Turkish police dispersed a group of students who were walking towards the ministry, chanting, ‘You murderer Blinken, get out of Turkey!'” While protests in the region persisted, pro-Palestinian activists battled with Turkish riot police outside the city’s US-Turkish Incirlik military air facility. When protestors attempted to cross fields to access the base in Southern Adana, police used tear gas and water cannons.
According to the report, “Blinken’s mission, his second in the region since the start of the war, found no support, while Israel rejected the idea of stopping, while Arab and Islamic countries are instead demanding an immediate ceasefire with the high number of casualties among Palestinian civilians as a result of The aggressive campaign.”
