In his first direct reply to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan constant Israel bashing, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told The Jerusalem Post Monday that Erdogan's most recent comments were both "false" and "outrageous."
Erdogan in a CNN interview said Israel has killed hundreds and thousands of Palestinians, while Palestinian missiles had killed only a few Israelis, and that Israel used the Holocaust to perpetrate its own victimhood.
"Both allegations are false," Netanyahu told the Post in a Rosh Hashana interview that will be published in full on Wednesday. "These are outrageous charges against Israel that have nothing to do with the facts."
