Turkey's foreign minister on Tuesday spoke to his Ukrainian counterpart over the phone, according to diplomatic sources.
Axar.az reports citing Turkish media that Besides bilateral relations, Mevlut Cavusoglu and Dmitro Kuleba discussed the latest developments in Palestine, as well as Turkey's diplomatic efforts on the matter.
At least 284 Palestinians including women and children were killed in recent Israeli attacks that continued for 11 days.
Tension escalated across the Palestinian territories last month over an Israeli court verdict to evict Palestinian families from their homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighbourhood in Jerusalem in favour of settlement groups.
The situation flared up after Israeli forces raided the Al-Aqsa Mosque and assaulted worshippers inside, and later launched airstrikes on Gaza.
