Turkey’s foreign ministry denounces Israel’s anti-terror operation in the West Bank city of Jenin.

“We strongly condemn the incursion carried out by the Israeli forces today,” the Turkish foreign ministry says in a statement.

“We are deeply concerned that the current tension in the region could trigger a new spiral of violence following these attacks, and we reiterate our call on the Israeli authorities to act with common sense and put an end to such actions,” it says.

“We wish Allah’s mercy upon our Palestinian brothers who lost their lives in the incident, a speedy recovery to the injured and extend our condolences to the State of Palestine and its people.”

The UAE also condemned the operation earlier today.

The US and UN have issued warnings to avoid civilian casualties.
