Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday that the "Palestinian flag will be raised in Jerusalem," after addressing rising tensions centering on the Temple Mount over recent weeks.

Davutoglu also harshly criticized the "expansion of settlements and Israel's continued policy of violating international law." The prime minister went on to say that "the right of Palestinians to live as one must be recognized."

The Turkish leader also vowed to provide the political and financial support necessary to help Palestinians in their effort for independence.
