Government Press Office Director Nitzan Chen has summoned – for tomorrow morning (Thursday, 6 November 2014) – the Israel bureau chief of the Turkish Anadolu Agency in the wake of a Tweet in which the terrorist responsible for today's deadly attack in Jerusalem was described as a "Palestinian man shot dead by the Israeli police."
