Turkish, Palestinian FMs talk Al-Aqsa crisis on phone

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu held a phone conversation on Friday with his Palestinian counterpart about the recent tension after Israeli officials imposed restrictions on Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa compound.

According to diplomatic sources, Cavuoglu and Riyad al-Malki discussed recent developments there.

Israeli authorities last week cancelled weekly Friday prayers for the first time in nearly five decades, following a shootout that left three Palestinians and two Israeli policemen dead.

Israel's imposition of metal detectors on the site this week triggered protests that left at least three Palestinians dead and hundreds wounded.
