Turkish Prime Minster Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Israel as a "terrorist state" on Saturday, speaking during a Turkish-Arab Forum in Istanbul, AFP reported.

Erdogan accused Israel of carrying out "ethnic cleansing" in the Gaza Strip, according to the report.

The Turkish prime minister also addressed the UN vote to upgrade the status of Palestine to that of a non-member observer state. He stated that despite the upgrade, Palestine remained a state under Israeli occupation.

Erdogan called on Palestinian factions to unify to establish a state with east Jerusalem as its capital.
