Turkey Sends Israeli Ambassador Home, Recalls Envoy From U.S.


Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador in Ankara and recalled its own envoys from Israel and the U.S., as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denounced both countries over the killing of Palestinians protesting the American embassy move to Jerusalem.

The Foreign Ministry in the Turkish capital said it summoned Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na’eh on Tuesday and told him it would be appropriate to return home for a period. Turkey’s envoys in Israel and the U.S. were recalled for consultations, the official Anadolu news agency reported late Monday, citing Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag.
