President Recep Erdogan says he is conserving shutting Turkey’s embassy in Abu Dhabi, recalling its ambassador and severing ties following the UAE’s normalization accord with Israel. “We will not allow the violation of the Palestinians’ rights,” he declared. Palestinian demonstrators in Jerusalem and Nablus burned placards depicting Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.
Netanyahu thanked Bahrain and Oman for welcoming the accord. They were followed by the European Union.
