Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu thinks Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan's accusations that Israel is behind Egypt ousting former president Mohamed Morsi have no validity, AFP reported on Wednesday.

An official from the prime minister's office told AFP, "These comments by the Turkish prime minister are nonsense."Erdogan had told provincial leaders of his AK Party on Tuesday that his government had evidence Israel had a hand in events that led to the ouster of Mohammed Morsi, leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, from Egypt's presidency.

"What do they say in Egypt? Democracy is not the ballot box. What is behind it? Israel. We have in our hands documentation," Erdogan told provincial leaders of his AK Party.
