Turkish prime minister says Rachel’s Tomb, Cave of Patriarchs will forever be Islamic sites
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan joined the Palestinians and various Arab states in criticizing Israel for its heritage plan, which includes sites located in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
“Al-Aqsa mosque, the Cave of Patriarchs, and Rachel’s Tomb will never be Jewish sites, but rather Islamic ones,” Erdogan told Palestinian reporters Sunday.
“Palestine is our problem, it has never been removed even for a day from our agenda,” the Saudi al-Watan newspaper quoted Erdogan as saying.
The Turkish leader added that he supports the Arab League’s decision to promote indirect talks between Israel and the Palestinians through US mediation.
