Turkey recalls ambassadors from US, Israel after over 50 Palestinians killed in Gaza.
The Turkish government also declared three days of mourning on Monday for over 50 Palestinians killed on the Israel-Gaza border.
Ankara condemned the “massacre” of Palestinians carried out by Israeli security forces, adding that regional and global peace and stability will not exist until a lasting a just solution to the Palestinian question is reached.
“We strongly condemn the decision of the U.S. Administration to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, violating international law and all relevant UN Resolutions. We reiterate that this action is legally null and void,” the Turkish Foreign Ministry said on Monday.
Hundreds of protesters gathered in Istanbul on Monday, chanting slogans condemning Israel.
