Israel and Egypt are not allowing Turkish aircrafts to use their airports for transporting wounded Palestinians, Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Recep Akdag said Wednesday.  

Akdag made the remarks in Lefkosa during his discussion on the massacre of Palestinians by Israeli forces along the Gaza-Israel fence with Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus Prime Minister Tufan Erhurman's office.  

He said Turkey had strongly condemned the massacre and lamented the fact that efforts to bring wounded Palestinians to Turkey were being thwarted by Israel and Egypt.   

“Standing beside our oppressed brothers is a humane duty for us,” he added as he denounced the oppression by the U.S. and Israel in Gaza.
