Radical Jewish groups and Israeli security forces caused the Temple Mount violence, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told President Isaac Herzog during a phone call on Tuesday evening to discuss ways to restore calm to Jerusalem's Old City. In a tweet he wrote after the call with his Israeli counterpart, Erdogan "emphasized the necessity of not allowing provocations and threats against the status and spirituality of the Al-Aqsa Mosque during this sensitive time."

They spoke after five days of riots on the Temple Mount and in the Old City which Erdogan said were caused by "some radical Israeli groups and security forces." The "raids by fanatic groups" at Al-Aqsa in recent days and the violence spreading to Gaza were also upsetting, Erdogan told Herzog, adding that he was particularly saddened by Palestinians who had been injured or killed by Israeli security forces.
