Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called Israel a cruel “terrorist” state on Saturday as Turkish media called to “free al-Aqsa” in Jerusalem like Erdogan reconsecrated the historic church of Hagia Sophia as a mosque last year. On May 9, Erdogan wrote in Turkish that he “invites the whole world, especially the Islamic countries, to take effective action against Israel's attacks on al-Aqsa Mosque, Jerusalem and Palestinian homes.” Erdogan also wrote in Hebrew, claiming he strongly condemned the “heinous attacks” in Jerusalem.
