The Israeli police attack on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied East Jerusalem is unacceptable. President Erdoğan called on Israel to abandon actions that inflame tensions.
President Erdoğan said that Israel should know that we stand with our Palestinian brothers and sisters in every situation. Violating the sanctity of Haram al-Sharif by reaching Al-Aqsa Mosque means crossing our red line. The Islamic world should be united against Israel’s aggressions in Palestine, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan reportedly told his Iranian counterpart on Friday.
Al-Aqsa Mosque is Turkey’s red line, President Erdoğan said in response to the Israeli army’s attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque at the iftar dinner of retired civil servants, Turkey cannot remain silent on such attacks, the security of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Haram Sharif is our red line.
These views were expressed by President Erdoğan in a television interview.
It should be noted that the Israeli forces attacked the Al-Aqsa Mosque with stun grenades and arrested more than 400 innocent worshipers and damaged the building of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Apart from the entire Muslim Ummah, non-Muslim conscientious sections are protesting against this state terrorism by Israel. Besides this, President Erdoğan also gave advice to Muslim Ummah to get united against Israeli Forces attack on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
