Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu is calling for a probe into Israel at the International Criminal Court in The Hague over the killing of protesters on the Gaza border.

In an interview with local media on Thursday, Çavuşoğlu accused Israel of committing war crimes and called for an international committee to issue a report on the violence in Gaza.

He also condemned the relocation of the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, urging the UN to deliver a strong response.

Addressing the public humiliation of the Israeli ambassador to Turkey at the Ankara airport, Çavuşoğlu said Israel is “trying to make itself appear like a victim” as part of its “chase after cheap politics.”
