The director of Israel's Government Press Office, Nitzan Chen, summoned the Israel bureau chief of the Turkish Anadolu Agency in the wake of a tweet in which the terrorist responsible for Wednesday's terror attack in Jerusalem was described as a "Palestinian man shot dead by the Israeli police."

"Journalists who engage in incitement and who disseminate misleading information which is liable to put lives at risk are liable to have their GPO cards revoked," the government office stated.
