Turkey's Erdogan slams Israel's PM "terrorist"
(MENAFN) Turkey and Israeli war of words over the late mentioned massacre in Gaza continued on Monday as a top Israeli minister said the reconciliation accord between the two countries may have been a mistake, reported Xinhua news agency.
Israel's Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan told Army Radio that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was "an anti-Semite who continues to support Hamas" after the latter slammed Israel for shooting dead 17 Palestinians during a mass protest near the Gaza fence on Friday.
"Looking back, maybe the accord should not have been approved," Erdan told Army Radio, referring to the 2016 deal with Ankara that ended years of diplomatic crisis, following an Israeli naval raid on a Turkish aid ship trying to break Israel's blockade of Gaza.
Erdogan said the 2016 reconciliation agreement between Israel and Turkey may have been a mistake.
On Sunday, Erdogan accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of being "a terrorist" and said Israel's response to Friday's protest was an "inhumane attack."
"Hey Netanyahu! You are occupier. And it is as an occupier that are you are on those lands, at the same time, you are a terrorist," Erdogan said in a televised address in Adana in southern Turkey.
