According to Daily news, Turkey has recalled its ambassadors to the U.S. and Israel for consultations.

“Turkey has recalled ambassadors in Tel Aviv and Washington for consultations,” Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ told reporters in Ankara following a cabinet meeting.

“Today will go down in the history as Bloody Monday for Muslims and Islamic countries,” Bozdağ said, also adding that “the U.S. has violated U.N. Security Council decisions by opening its embassy in Jerusalem.”

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said the country has declared a three-day national mourning.

“We declare a national mourning for three days, starting tomorrow, to stand in solidarity with our Palestinian brothers,” Erdoğan said, addressing students in London.

“Israel is a terror state,” Erdogan reiterated.

Labeling the killings on May 14 a “genocide,” Erdoğan also said a big rally is set to be held on May 18 in Istanbul as a sign of solidarity.

“I will be speaking with several leaders including [Mahmoud Abbas] and the U.N. Secretary General,” Turkish president added.
