Turkey Condemns Israel for Building

Turkey is condemning Israel’s continued construction of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria, the Turkish Hurriyet newspaper reported.

According to the report, the Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a statement in which it said that “Israel’s actions in the areas in invaded are not acceptable. We will not recognize the illegal measures taken by Israel.”

Turkey’s condemnation comes in response to the Israeli government’s decision to issue tenders for construction of 300 new housing units in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
