In response to the violence in Gaza, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has recalled the country's ambassadors to the US and Israel, accusing Israel of "state terror" and "genocide."

According to reports, Erdogan is recalling the ambassadors for consultations over the ongoing situation in the Gaza Strip. This announcement is in addition to the 64-year-old declaring three days of mourning for the 55 Palestinians who were killed during Monday's protest amid the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem. Nearly 3,000 Palestinians have been injured.

"Turkey will react to this harshly. We have withdrawn our ambassadors from Washington and Tel Aviv for consultations," Erdogan said on NTV Television during his visit to the UK. "We also propose to convene an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council. We will hold talks with many leaders."

"We are declaring a three-day national mourning starting tomorrow," he added.

South Africa had previously recalled its ambassador to Israel on Monday. A statement released by the country's foreign ministry stated that it's ambassador to Israel would be recalled "with immediate effect until further notice."
