Cavusoglu: ‘Netanyahu a cold blooded murderer’
Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday, saying that he is a cold-blooded killer of modern times
The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday, saying that he is “a cold-blooded killer of modern times, responsible for massacres of thousands of innocent Palestinians, bombing children on beaches. Turkey will never stop exposing the truth.”
Relations between Turkey and Israel have been tense this year over multiple issues including a controversial law passed by the Israeli parliament in July which defined the country as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
Netanyahu said President Recep Tayyip Erdogan "should not preach to Israel" after the Turkish leader warned young Turks on Saturday: "Do not kick the enemy you have brought down to the ground.
You are not a Jew in Israel."
Netanyahu said Erdogan was "the occupier of northern Cyprus, whose army massacres women and children in Kurdish villages, inside and outside Turkey" in a tweet late on Saturday.
Erdogan has bitterly criticised Israel previously, calling it in July "the world's most fascist and racist state".
