Palestinian starts walk from Istanbul to Ankara to 'thank Turkey'

Palestinian activist Aladdin al-Fares started a walk from Istanbul to capital Ankara on Friday.

Al-Fares says his march is a sign of gratitude of Palestinians for Turkey's support to "their cause" and its stance against "Israeli aggression" toward Al-Aqsa Mosque, a sacred site for Muslims.

Al-Fares also plans to walk to other Turkish cities after completing his journey to Ankara.
