Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan urged Muslims to help protect Jerusalem and support the Palestinian cause. The 62-year-old leader took a tough stance against Israel at a time when Turkey is looking to improve ties between the two nations, ending nearly six years of hostilities.
“It is the common duty of all Muslims to embrace the Palestinian cause and protect Jerusalem,” Erdoğan reportedly said Tuesday at a parliamentary symposium in Istanbul.
