Palestinian terror groups, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, condemned Turkey’s President for meeting with Israeli President, Isaac Herzog. Herzog recently met with Turkish President Erdogan in efforts to warm diplomatic ties between Israel and Turkey, which have struggled over the years. Hamas and PIJ claimed that Turkey had abandoned the Palestinian cause. Turkey has been very supportive of Hamas over the years, and there are no signs this support is shifting. However, Herzog’s visit was a good first step in Israel’s efforts to repair the damaged ties. Please pray that Israel will continue to seek to repair ties with Turkey, as this is an important strategic relationship. Please also pray for wisdom for Israeli officials as they navigate sensitive issues with Turkey. Lastly, please pray that Turkey will stop supporting Islamic terror, especially Hamas, which seeks to totally destroy Israel.
