Erdogan: Israel will be isolated if it does not open Al-Aqsa

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said yesterday that he hoped the Israeli administration would act “wisely and reopen Al-Aqsa Mosque for Muslims to be able to access their places of worship”, warning that “these actions will otherwise lead to the regional isolation of Israel and the world will witness this as it happens”.

In his statements published by the Anadolu Agency, Erodgan said: “The issue of closing Al-Aqsa Mosque is one that concerns all Muslims, not just Palestinians and Arabs. The steps that are being taken by the Israeli government are unforgivable, barbaric and despicable. We cannot stay silent and watch these developments continue.”

“We must take the necessary action to prevent these developments on the international level otherwise one can expect that the reaction to Israel’s policies in Jerusalem will not be confined to Palestine or Jerusalem alone. It is quite possible that the bounds of this uprising will reach much further than that,” Erdogan continued.
