A motion proposing the annulment of economic, military and political agreements between Turkey and Israel was voted down by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and its election ally, the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), in Parliament on Thursday, the T24 news website reported.

The motion was submitted by the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP).

“A motion for parliamentary evaluation of the annulment of all political, economic and military agreements and the imposition of economic sanctions on Israel has been rejected by the votes of the AKP and MHP,” the HDP tweeted.

“AKP to continue with Israel,” said main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) deputy Ali Şeker in a tweet, underlining the gap between the words and deeds of the ruling party concerning Israeli and Palestine policy.

Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım on Tuesday called on Muslim countries to review their ties with Israel, a day after Israeli security forces killed 60 Palestinians during protests on the Gaza border.

President Erdoğan on Monday called Israel a “terror state” and added that “the assault on the Gaza protesters exposed Israel’s ugly face, one that is carrying out genocide in Gaza.”

Ankara on Tuesday recalled its ambassadors from Washington and Tel Aviv to hold an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in Istanbul on May 18.

In Istanbul on Monday, thousands protested the recent developments in Palestine.
