The Islamic world should be united against Israel’s attacks in Palestine, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told his Iranian counterpart on Friday, reports Anadolu agency.

Erdogan and Ebrahim Raisi spoke over the phone and discussed Turkiye-Iran relations and regional issues, including Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque in the occupied East Jerusalem, Turkiye’s Communications Directorate said in a statement.

Emphasising that common sense should prevail to prevent a new spiral of violence, Erdogan said that it would be beneficial to take initiatives to guide all parties to common sense.

Calling on Raisi to jointly continue efforts in international platforms, especially in the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and the UN, to preserve the status of holy places, Erdogan said it is important to demonstrate unity, particularly in the face of recent acts such as the burning of the holy Quran in European cities.
