Turkey calls on the Islamic world to unite against Israel as Erdogan and Netanyahu exchange insults on Twitter over Gaza protest deaths

Turkey is urging on all Islamic nations to unite against Israel at a summit called in the wake of this week's violence on the Gaza border.

More than 60 Palestinians have been killed - many by Israeli live fire - in the last two days amid violent demonstrations over the opening of a new US embassy in Jerusalem.

President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an called the extraordinary summit of the world's main pan-Islamic body, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), as he engaged in a Twitter spat with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Erdo?an said the meeting in Istanbul on Friday 'will give a very strong message to the world' on the cause of the Palestinians, as his Prime Minister, Binali Yildirim, urged Islamic countries to 'review their ties with Israel'.
