Both Egypt and Turkey lob criticism at Israel after a deadly IDF raid in Jenin that killed nine Palestinians, most of whom are believed to be members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror group.

Cairo’s Foreign Ministry condemns the raid and demands “an immediate halt” to such activity, and calls on the UN and other international bodies to work to “put an end to the repeated assaults against the Palestinian people.”

Ankara, meanwhile, expresses “sadness” over the loss of life in Jenin and says it is “deeply concerned” by increased tensions in the West Bank, calling on Israel to “prevent an escalation” in the region.
