Turkish officials has declared that they are prepared to take in wounded Palestinians after Israeli fire killed dozens and wounded thousands during Monday's Gaza border protests.


Turkish Health Minister Ahmet Demircan, speaking Tuesday stated that Turkey is waiting for negotiations to conclude transporting wounded Gazans. He said the wounded are at high risk due to insufficient health care in Gaza, which has been under an Israeli-Egyptian blockade for more than 10 years.
