Turkish and Qatari foreign ministers discussed the Palestine matter on Friday, according to diplomatic sources, reports Anadolu Agency.

Mevlut Cavusoglu and Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani also discussed matters related to Afghanistan during a telephone call.

Israeli police said Wednesday it detained 350 Palestinians from the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex in East Jerusalem, with witnesses saying they used excessive force, including tear gas.

Israel occupied East Jerusalem during the 1967 Arab-Israeli War and later annexed the entire city in 1980 – a move never recognised by the international community.
