ANKARA (Reuters) – Turkey said on Monday that Israel was violating human rights at al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem and called on global powers to take a unified stance in response.

Deputy Prime Minister and government spokesman Bekir Bozdag said after a cabinet meeting that Israeli actions at the mosque were unacceptable.

Israel said on Sunday it would not remove metal detectors whose installation outside al-Aqsa has triggered the bloodiest clashes with the Palestinians in years. However it said it could eventually reduce their use.
