Turkey Pulls Its Ambassadors From Tel Aviv and USA #Jerusalem

Turkey Pulls Its Ambassadors From Tel Aviv and USA <a class="hashtagger" href="https://sigmaturkey.com/tag/jerusalem/">#Jerusalem</a>

Turkey has removed its ambassadors from the US and Israel after a day of bloodshed saw 52 killed in clashes in Gaza.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey accused Israel of genocide and vowed: “We will continue to stand with Palestinian people with determination.”

The protests were sparked by Donald Trump’s relocation of the USA’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Erdogan declared during a press conference tonight: “We will not allow today to be the day Muslim world loses Jerusalem.”

He slammed the violence as a “humanitarian tragedy” and said: “What Israel is doing is genocide.”

The Turkish president added: “From 1948, this occupation has been ongoing. Palestine has shrunk and shrunk. They are trying to kick them out of the land.”

Earlier Turkey called for an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) this week.

Ankara wants the emergency meeting to be held on Friday, spokesman Bekir Bozdag said.

On the bloodiest single day for Palestinians since the Gaza conflict in 2014, Israeli troops shot dead Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border.
