Israel-Hamas war: Turkey’s parliament on Tuesday removed Coca-Cola and Nestle products from its restaurants over alleged support for Israel.

“It was decided that products from companies supporting Israel will not be sold in restaurants, cafeterias and tea houses on the parliament premises,” a parliament statement said.

Parliament Speaker Numan Kurtulmus made the decision but the companies were not identified in the statement. Coca-Cola Beverages and Nestlé Instant Coffee were the only brands to be removed, a source told Reuters news agency, a decision taken due to public demand.

Activists on social media are calling on people to boycott Israeli goods and Western companies that support its attack on Gaza.

The Turkish government has sharply criticized Israel’s bombing of Gaza and Western support for Jerusalem.

Israel has bombed Gaza since a Hamas attack on southern Israel a month ago, when its fighters killed 1,400 people and captured 240 hostages.

Gaza health officials say the Israeli attacks have killed more than 10,000 Palestinians, including about 4,100 children.

Thousands of Turks have taken to the streets in protest against Israeli actions in Gaza over the past month, with protests also taking place on social media.
