According to Anadolu Agency (AA), Deputy Foreign Minister Ahmet Yildiz presented Trkiye's oral statements in advisory proceedings on the legal consequences of Israel's policies and practices in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, calling for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza and an unhindered flow of aid to Palestinians as the holy month of Ramadan approaches. "It is alarming to see reports regarding plans by the Israeli government to limit prayers of Muslims at Haram al Sharif during Ramadan," he said during public hearings in The Hague, adding that the "provocative rhetoric" by certain Israeli ministers is also "worrisome." Expressing Ankara's position regarding the situation in Occupied Palestinian Territories, in cluding East Jerusalem, Yildiz said Trkiye is "deeply concerned" with unilateral policies and practices of Israel, which "violates the status quo in Haram al Sharif." He also noted that the situation unfolding since Oct. 7 "once again proves" that there can be no peace in the region without addressing the root cause of the Gaza conflict.
