Turkey condemns Israeli police attacks against Palestinian worshipers at al-Aqsa mosque

ANKARA, Saturday, May 08, 2021 (WAFA) – Turkey strongly condemned the attacks by Israeli forces against the Palestinians worshipping in al-Aqsa Mosque, which left many Palestinian civilians injured, today said Turkey’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a press statement.

“We urge the Israeli government, which caused the incidents of this evening by targeting the freedom of worship of the Palestinian people and the status of al-Haram al-Sharif during the month of Ramadan, to put an end to its aggressive and provocative policies and act with common sense,” it said.

“Today, the steps that can be taken in the international fora were discussed with Riad Malki, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Palestine, who is visiting our country upon the invitation of Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu and Turkey will continue to support the just cause of the Palestinian people,” the statement concluded.
