Turkish first lady hails Anadolu’s ‘Evidence’ documentary as ‘crucial historical document’ of Israeli war crimes


Türkiye’s First Lady Emine Erdogan said on Wednesday that Anadolu’s documentary “Evidence” on Israeli war crimes in Gaza will be a “crucial” historical document, ensuring “future generations know the full truth of the atrocities.”  

Erdogan sent a message to Serdar Karagoz, CEO and President of Anadolu, regarding the premiere of the documentary “Evidence” prepared by the global news agency of Türkiye.

She highlighted that the world is witnessing one of the “darkest periods in human history” and emphasized the occurrence of a genocide unfolding before everyone’s eyes.

Emphasizing Türkiye’s enduring stance alongside the oppressed and against oppressors, she stressed its commitment to being on the right side of history.

She conveyed that Türkiye continues to provide all kinds of support to halt the escalating humanitarian tragedy, especially in Gaza since October 7, 2023, and to establish peace.

“Bravely continuing your duties on the frontlines, under the most challenging conditions, our heroic reporters, you become the pride of the human family, both by fighting to expose oppression and by providing evidence to activate the mechanisms of justice,” she said.

Adding that “The atrocities you document through recorded footage and interviews serve as undeniable proof, refreshing my belief in justice, particularly in seeing the unlawful practices of the Israeli government, long condemned by conscience, being accepted as key evidence before the International Criminal Court.”

“With your intense dedication and courage, the ‘Evidence’ documentary you’ve crafted as the voice of truth will stand among the most crucial documents of our century,” she further added.

The “Evidence” documentary not only depicts the massacres “truthfully” for future generations but also highlights the presence of principled individuals and peace-promoting institutions, Erdogan said.

Congratulating Anadolu, she sent heartfelt thanks to all involved, especially the director of the documentary, reporters and artists.
