1 Min Read

Protests erupted in Istanbul today as demonstrators set fire to the Israeli Consulate in a dramatic escalation of regional tensions. The incident occurred amidst growing anger over recent developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which has seen a significant increase in violence and civilian casualties. 

Witnesses reported that a large crowd gathered outside the consulate early this morning, chanting slogans and holding placards denouncing Israeli actions in Gaza. The protest quickly turned violent, with some participants breaking through the security perimeter and setting fire to the building. Local authorities and emergency services responded promptly, but the fire caused significant damage before it was brought under control. 

No injuries have been reported so far, but the consulate has been temporarily closed, and staff evacuated as a precautionary measure.  

This incident marks a significant deterioration in Turkish-Israeli relations, which have been strained in recent years over differing views on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
