The “Freedom Convoy for Palestine,” organised by the Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), departed from Istanbul en route to Incirlik Air Base in Adana on Friday, aiming to show solidarity with Palestine, Anadolu Agency reports.
Numerous NGOs and citizens assembled under the leadership of the IHH at the parking lot of the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.
Participants chanted slogans against Israel and expressed their outrage over the attacks on Gaza.
Bulent Yildirim, the President of the IHH, stated in his remarks that their actions are not only directed against Incirlik Air Base but against all American bases worldwide.
Former US diplomat and activist, Ann Wright, as well as activists from countries such as the UK, Norway, Finland and Canada supported the convoy.
The convoy, consisting of 250 vehicles adorned with Turkish and Palestinian flags, set out for Incirlik Air Base after the speeches. It plans to reach Incirlik Air Base in Adana on Sunday, 5 November, after organising various events in Kocaeli, Ankara and Konya.
