OIC to meet in Istanbul Friday to mull Israel violence

Mesut Ozil and Ilkay Gundogan earn federation ire after

The Turkish Foreign Ministry has told Israel's consul general in Istanbul to return to Israel "for some time", state-run Anadolu news agency said on Wednesday, after Israeli forces killed more than 60 Palestinians during protests on the Gaza border.

The two leaders called for an emergency Islamic summit to discuss the US embassy relocation to Jerusalem, which undermines future opportunities for any peaceful settlement, and the repercussions of Israel's violence in occupied Palestine, Qatar-based English newspaper Gulf Times said.

During a telephonic call, the Turkish leader extended invitation to Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for participation in the extraordinary session of the OIC.

Since the Gaza rallies kicked off on March 30, scores of Palestinian demonstrators have been killed - and thousands injured - by Israeli troops deployed along the other side of the border.

Israel suspended the import of agricultural products from Turkey on May 16.

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation has strongly condemned the Israeli aggression against Palestinian civilians, which led to the martyrdom of more than 52 and the injuries to about 2,000 people during peaceful protests.
