Germany Reacts to Ozil, Gundogan For Picture Taken With Erdogan

Israel responded by ordering the Turkish consul in Jerusalem, Hüsnü Gürcan Türkoğlu, to leave for an unspecified period of time, its foreign ministry said.

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Twitter Erdogan was in no position to "preach morality to us" because he supported the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas which rules Gaza.

Turkey on Tuesday asked the diplomat to leave the country.

Ambassador Eitan Naeh was summoned to the foreign ministry and told to "return to his country for a period of time", said a Turkish foreign ministry official, AFP reported.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım on May 15 called on the world's more than 1.5 billion Muslims to "band together" over the Palestinian cause after more than 60 people were killed by Israeli forces in Gaza.

President Tayyip Erdogan described Monday's bloodshed, the deadliest for Palestinians since the 2014 Gaza conflict, as genocide and called Israel a terrorist state.

Responding on Twitter in English, Erdogan said: "Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people's lands for 60+ yrs in violation of United Nations resolutions".

Tottenham Hotspur picked up a stunning 5-4 victory against Leicester City on the final day of the Premier League season. I think I have a very clear idea of what we need to do. "We'll try to do the same as previous year ".

Speaking alongside May, Erdogan warned that history would not forgive Israel or the United States for moving the American embassy to Jerusalem in defiance of outrage in the Islamic world.

"America says "I am strong and so I am right". Erdoğan believes that the exiled cleric Fethullah Gülen, now in the USA, was behind the 2016 failed military coup.May said that while it was right that those who sought to overthrow a democratically elected government were brought to justice, "it is also important that in the defence of democracy..."

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan began his three-day state visit to Britain on Sunday by praising the country as "an ally and a strategic partner, but also a real friend".

Earlier, Yıldırım invited his counterparts from five countries to join an emergency summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the killings of Palestinians at the Gaza border.

"We have made our view clear on the embassy", he told MPs. Erdogan regards himself as a champion of the Palestinian cause and previous year hosted an OIC summit in Istanbul to denounce US President Donald Trumps decision to recognise occupied-al-Quds as Israel's capital. Erdogan, who is campaigning for presidential and parliamentary elections next month, said a rally will be held on Friday to protest the killings.

Shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry told the Commons: "What makes yesterday's events all the worse is that they didn't come as a result of some accidental over-reaction to one day's protest, but as the result of a culmination of six weeks, an apparently calculated and deliberate policy to kill and maim unarmed protesters, who posed no threat to the forces on the Gaza border".
