Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned Israel's plan to annex parts of the West Bank and gave his support to Palestinians on Monday in a video statement to U.S. Muslims on Eid al-Fitr.  

"Last week we have witnessed that a new occupation and project, which disregards Palestine’s sovereignty and the international law, was put into action by Israel," Erdogan said, while congratulating U.S. muslims on the Muslim holiday.
