Turkish Minister for EU Affairs Volkan Bozkir expressed his anger and disapproval over the recent entry of Israeli troops to Al-Aqsa Mosque with their boots on.

“I want to direct my speech to the group of Israeli soldiers who entered Al-Aqsa with their shoes still on and say that if you do not leave Al-Aqsa as soon as possible, then we will force you out with your shoes in your hands and we will watch you as you walk away with your backs turned to us,” Bozkir added.

During his speech at a Justice and Development party conference in Burdur, Bozkir heavily criticised Israeli violations in Jerusalem as of late and the IDF’s decision to storm Al-Aqsa Mosque by saying that it is sacred to Turks as well as Arabs and other Muslims.

“Turkey has not allowed anyone to spoil the peace that we have achieved in Palestine to this day and we will not allow it from here on out,” he concluded.
