Turkey has "vehemently" condemned the demolition of the Shepherd Hotel in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of east Jerusalem, AFP reported. The Turkish Department of Foreign Affairs released a statement saying the act "bears a heavy blow to the establishment of an atmosphere of trust" between Israelis and Palestinians.

The statement continues: "Israel, through an approach that openly violates the resolutions of the Security Council of the UN, has deepened the skepticism over its sincerity to the peace process."
