Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu responded to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s charge that his hands are “stained with Palestinian blood” following the deadly riots on the Gaza Strip Monday.

“A man who sends thousands of Turkish soldiers to hold the occupation of northern Cyprus and invades Syria will not preach to us when we defend ourselves from an attempted infiltration by Hamas,” Netanyahu told Erdogan.

“A man whose hands are stained with the blood of countless Kurdish citizens in Turkey and Syria is the last one who can preach to us about combat ethics,” Netanyahu added.
Earlier, Erdogan wrote on his Twitter account: “Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people’s lands for 60+ yrs in violation of UN resolutions.”

“He has the blood of Palestinians on his hands and can’t cover up crimes by attacking Turkey,” Erdogan added.

Turkey temporarily expelled the Israeli ambassador to Istanbul Tuesday. In response, Israel temporarily expelled the Turkish consul in Jerusalem.

In a tweet, the president said Palestinians are not terrorists and Hamas is only defending the Palestinian homeland against Israel as an occupying power.
Erdoğan had called Netanyahu “the PM of an apartheid state that has occupied a defenseless people’s lands for 60 more years in violation of U.N. resolutions.

“He has the blood of Palestinians on his hands and can’t cover up crimes by attacking Turkey,” Erdoğan said in an English-language Twitter post in response to earlier remarks made by Netanyahu.
