Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi has warned that the ongoing airstrikes by the Israeli regime on the blockaded Gaza Strip will jeopardize security in the region.

Morsi made the remarks at a joint press conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Cairo on Saturday. He also warned of dire consequences of a possible ground operation by Israeli forces against Gaza.

The Israeli regime has authorized the mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, preparing for a possible ground invasion of Gaza.

Erdogan arrived in Cairo on Saturday for talks with the Egyptian president to discuss the issue of the latest Israeli airstrikes.

The two sides announced that Cairo and Ankara condemn the deadly attacks.

Speaking at Egypt’s Cairo University on Saturday, Erdogan said Israel has once again committed every type of inhumane act to turn the region into a bloodbath.

The Turkish premier said the Israeli regime will pay a price, sooner or later, for killing children in the attacks. He also expressed Turkey’s support for the Palestinians in Gaza.

Nearly 50 Palestinians have been killed and more than 400 others wounded in the Israeli airstrikes since November 14.

On November 16, Morsi said, “Egypt will not leave Gaza on its own… What is happening is a blatant aggression against humanity.”

“I tell them (Israelis) in the name of all the Egyptian people that the Egypt of today is not the Egypt of yesterday and that the Arabs of today are different than the Arabs of yesterday.”
