Just like in a lot of other matters, Israel is again acting against international laws and we are protesting against Turkish government who fail to stop Israel from treating one of its citizens in such inhumane ways.” Hizarci also noted that the government and state officials should interfere into the matter, said that Izzet Sahin should immediately be released from this situation and be set free.
