Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Thursday launched yet another verbal attack on Israel, this time over its actions on the Temple Mount.
According to the Today’s Zaman newspaper, Erdogan slammed Israel over its “raid” on the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and vowed to take the issue to the UN Security Council.
Addressing reporters ahead of a visit to Turkmenistan, Erdogan called Israel’s actions barbaric and said Turkey will not remain silent.
He further claimed that ulterior motives were behind the Israeli raid, saying that whenever the international community pays attention to other parts of the world — referring to recent conflicts in the Syrian cities of Kobani and Aleppo — a crisis like the one at the Al-Aqsa mosque breaks out.
