Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu slammed Israel for its recent "attacks" on Jerusalem, vowing to defend the city and its holy sites, even if doing so alone.

"Nothing will prevent Turkey from protecting Jerusalem and the al-Aksa mosque," Davutoglu addressed his party at a weekly faction meeting in Ankara, according to Turkish media.

Israel's "brutal" leaders should not "dare consider" continuing their attacks on the city, Hurriyet quoted him as saying.

He promised his country would not be silent, even as the rest of the world turns a blind eye to the recent sequence of events in the capital. Turkey, Davutoglu said, will be the most vocal opponent against Israel's actions, which have tainted the al-Aqsa mosque.
