Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan says Turkey will push for Israel to be tried at an international criminal court if it kept up its assault on Gaza and accused the Jewish state of "spitting blood."

"If Israel continues with this attitude, it will definitely be tried at international courts," Erdogan, who is campaigning for a presidential election on Aug. 10, told a rally of supporters in the southern port city of Mersin.

"We will see this happen and Turkey will struggle for this," he told the cheering crowd.
