In a tweet posted on Saturday, Benjamin Netanyahu referred to Erdogan as an “occupier of northern Cyprus,” saying that the Turkish Army “massacres women and children in Kurdish villages.”
The Turkish leader responded the next day, and he gave as good as he got. He branded the Israeli PM the “voice of the oppressors” who commits crimes against Palestinians.
“Netanyahu, you are cruel. You are the head of state terror,” he said, as quoted by Gazete Duvar.
Erdogan’s attack on the Israeli prime minister was followed up by several top Turkish officials, including Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu. He called Netanyahu “a cold-blooded killer” who is responsible for the “massacres of innocent Palestinians.” Erdogan’s spokesperson and chief adviser, Ibrahim Kalin, also demanded that Israel ends the “lawless occupation of Palestinian lands.”
