Erdogan says it is 'obligation' of all Muslims to protect Jerusalem

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday said that it was the "obligation" of all Muslims to protect Jerusalem, the state run Anadolu news agency reports.

“To embrace the case of Palestine, to defend Jerusalem, is a common case for all Muslims, a common obligation,” he said at a parliamentary symposium in Istanbul.

He added that the defense of the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem should not be left to children armed with rocks, said the Associated Press.

The flash-point complex is considered Judaism's holiest site, once the site of the First and Second Temples, and is the third holiest to the Muslim faith.
