Turkish First Lady Deems This Year the “Darkest” World Children’s Day Amid Israeli Attacks on Palestinian Children

In a poignant statement on Monday, Turkish First Lady Emine Erdoğan declared that this year is marked as the “darkest” World Children’s Day, particularly for Palestinian children who live in uncertainty amid ongoing Israeli attacks, unsure if they will survive to see the following day.

Earlier on November 15, Emine Erdoğan expressed that Gaza has transformed into a city of “unknown children,” a heartbreaking reference to the innocent lives lost in Israeli bombing raids, with no one left to identify their remains.

Fahrettin Altun, a prominent Turkish politician, echoed these sentiments on a public platform, emphasizing that the current state of the world is not what children deserve. Altun added, “We reiterate our (Turkish) President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s call, this time for our children: A fairer world is possible.” The statements reflect a deep concern for the well-being of children, especially those caught in conflict zones, and a call for global efforts to create a more just and equitable world for the younger generation.
