President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan held separate phone calls with President of Palestine Mahmoud Abbas and Head of Hamas Political Bureau Ismail Haniyeh.
Israel's attacks against Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians were discussed in the phone calls.
Describing Israel's attacks in Al-Quds as 'terror', President Erdoğan said that he condemned in the strongest terms these despicable attacks, which wounded the consciences of not only Muslims but of the whole humanity, and the oppression inflicted upon the Palestinians.
Stressing that they would do everything in their power to mobilize the entire world, first and foremost the Islamic World, with a view to stopping the terror and occupation carried out by Israel, President Erdoğan noted that Turkey would always continue to defend the Palestinian cause, stand by its Palestinian brothers and sisters, and protect Al-Quds' dignity.
