Russian President Vladimir Putin will make an official visit to


Turkey on Monday, Dec. 11, to discuss developments in
Syria and Jerusalem with Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan,
Turkish presidential sources said on Friday.
The Kremlin confirmed the visit by Putin on Friday, saying the two
leaders would discuss energy projects and "key international
problems".

Erdogan and Putin held a phone call on Thursday where they agreed
that the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital will
negatively impact the region's peace and stability.
One dead, scores hurt in Palestinian
"Day of Rage" over Jerusalem
At least one person was killed in clashes with Israeli troops on
Friday when thousands of Palestinians demonstrated against
U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as
Israel's capital and the Palestinian president said Washington
could no longer be a peace broker.

Across the Arab and Muslim worlds, thousands more


protesters took to the streets on the Muslim holy day,
expressing solidarity with the Palestinians and outrage at
Trump's reversal of decades of U.S. policy.

Israeli soldiers shot dead a Palestinian man near the Gaza


border, the first confirmed death in two days of unrest. Scores
of people were wounded on the "Day of Rage".
