Turkey says concerned by Israel's plans to annex Islamic heritage

Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said Wednesday they were concerned about labelling certain Islamic historical artifacts as "Israeli cultural heritage" including those in the West Bank.

At a time when efforts are being made to solve the Israeli-Palestinian dispute, such acts by Israeli authorities will harm the process and lead to serious deterioration of confidence among the sides, the MFA stressed.

Turkish MFA made a call on Israel to act in accordance with international laws in Jerusalem and West Bank and seriously refrain from attempts that are one sided and provocative visa vis sacred sites and historical artifacts that are considered to be holy by Muslims.
