Speaking in an interview to state-broadcaster TRT Haber, Cavusoglu also said that an independent comission needs to prepare a report on the violence in Gaza and that Israel needs to stand in the face of law. Israeli troops shot dead dozens of Palestinian protesters on the Gaza border on Monday as the United States opened its embassy to Israel in Jerusalem.
