Turkey Slams Israel Again

Turkey once again sharply criticized Israel Tuesday. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that Israel's "threats to use violence" and its military might will ensure that tension in the Middle East continues. It is Israeli policy that prevents any peace deal from coming about, he said.

The Turkish minister also demanded that Israel refrain from sending security forces onto the Temple Mount, and said his government was watching developments there "closely."
