The Ayoub Kara Humanitarian Aid Flotilla


Deputy Minister for the Development of the Negev and Galilee, MK Ayoub Kara has presented a request of Turkish PM Erdogan to allow a humanitarian aid flotilla to assist the thousands of Syrian refugees camped in Southern Turkey.

“In the name of freedom fighters and human rights loyalists in Israel and worldwide, I request that you approve the delegation. As a Druze with wide orientation I have great concern for the fate of the Syrian people and of the refugees forced from their homes”, wrote Kara.

MK Kara said that the Turkish embassy personnel were surprised by the initiative and welcomed it, and confirmed that it would be brought to the Turkish PM today.
