GAZA CITY — A Gaza man swept up in the pro-Turkey sentiments washing over the seaside strip has named his son after the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Gaza's population registry said that a baby named Recep Erdogan was born Saturday in the town of Khan Younis.

Saleh Abu Shamala said Sunday he decided to name his third child after the Turkish premier "because he was the only leader who called to lift the unfair siege of Gaza."
