Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has strongly condemned Israeli attacks on worshipers at Al-Aqsa Mosque.
This is apparent from his phone call with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Sunday, according to a post he made on his social media accounts.
During this interview, Erdogan expressed his wishes for a speedy recovery for the injured and implored divine mercy for the victims of the Israeli attacks.
He assured his Palestinian counterpart that his country would face threats and provocations against Al-Aqsa Mosque, adding, “Turkey will always be on the side of Palestine.”
The Turkish President stressed that the current events are a reminder of how much the Palestinians must work for unity and reconciliation.
And to continue: “I expressed to Mr. Abbas my gratitude for the wisdom of his leadership, whether it be his commitment to unity or his appeals for restraint.”
