Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday condemned Israel's "heinous attacks against our first qibla #AlAqsaMosque", he wrote on Twitter.
He went on to urge the world to take effective action against Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem and Palestinian homes.
We strongly condemn Israel's heinous attacks against our first qibla #AlAqsaMosque, that are unfortunately being carried out every Ramadan.
As Turkey, we will continue to stand by our Palestinian brothers and sisters in all circumstances.
— Recep Tayyip Erdoğan (@RTErdogan) May 8, 2021
"Jerusalem is the world itself. And the Muslims there are humanity itself," Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Twitter.
He said that protecting the honor and dignity of the holy city of Jerusalem was the duty of every Muslim.
"We regard every attack on places of worship, chiefly Al-Aqsa, and on Muslims, as attacks made on us," he said. "It is the duty of every individual who calls themselves a human being, to oppose tyrants that defile Jerusalem, home to the sacred for the three religions."
