Ismail Haniyeh, political leader of the Palestinian Islamist terror group Hamas, will visit Turkey over the weekend to hold talks with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, broadcaster NTV says.

“I will host the leader of the Palestinian cause at the weekend. We will discuss a number of issues,” Erdogan earlier tells lawmakers from his AK Party in parliament, once again calling Hamas a “liberation movement.”
