Turkish lawmaker, Hasan Bitmez, dies two days after collapsing while giving a speech saying Israel would ‘suffer the wrath of Allah’ for invading Gaza.. Two days after falling while delivering a speech to the Turkish parliament, a legislator from Turkey has passed away. He was expressing his belief that Israel will “suffer the wrath of Allah” for invading Gaza.
A member of parliament from the opposition Felicity (Saadet) Party named Hasan Bitmez, who was 54 years old, passed away in Ankara City Hospital, according to statements made by the Minister of Health Fahrettin Koca which were shown on television.
After giving a speech in the General Assembly Hall in Ankara, Hasan Bitmez was seen in a video that went viral collapsing to the ground. This caused other politicians to rush to the scene in order to assist him.
According to The Yeshiva World, Bitmez had expressed his conclusion to his lecture by adding, “We can perhaps hide from our conscience but not from history.” He also stated that “Israel will suffer the wrath of Allah.”
When he reached that point, he stumbled and fell to his knees, after which he laid down on his back in a flat position. As a result of getting chest compressions “for a long time,” the deputy of the Saadet Party in Kocaeli had to be carried out of the hall on a stretcher, according to accounts from Turkish media.
According to reports, Turhan Çomez, a deputy from the Kemalist İYİ Party and a registered physician, was the first one to provide assistance to his political adversary.
Despite being in a critical state, the lawmaker was transported to the Bilkent City Hospital in Ankara, where he received treatment in the intensive care unit.
According to Koca, an angiography revealed that the two main veins in his heart were entirely clogged. This information was disclosed on Tuesday.
According to what Koca had stated on Tuesday, “His heart stopped beating, and then he was resuscitated in parliament and transferred within twenty minutes to hospital,” where he was kept alive by medical apparatus.
On the other hand, Koca disclosed that Bitmez passed away today, which is two days after he received the heart attack.
Shortly before he passed out on Tuesday, Hasan Bitmez had been expressing his disapproval of President Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling AK Party (AKP) about Turkey’s continuous trade with Israel despite the current conflict in Gaza, as well as despite the government’s loud verbal denunciation of Israel’s military bombing.
You are allowing ships to travel to Israel, and you are calling it trade without any shame… After putting a banner on the stage that said “Murderer Israel; collaborator AKP,” Bitmez remarked in his address, “You are Israel’s accomplice.” These words were spoken after Hasan Bitmez placed the banner.
“You are complicit in the killing of Palestinians, and you have the blood of Palestinians on your hands.” In the course of the discussion over the budget for the foreign ministry in 2024, he told the MPs that they were contributing to each bomb that Israel dropped on Gaza.
Following the conclusion of the speech, Hasan Bitmez unexpectedly slumped backwards onto the floor, prompting other members of parliament to rush out of their seats to assist him.
During the elections that took place on May 14, 2023, Hasan Bitmez was chosen to serve as the Kocaeli Deputy for the 28th Term.
