Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a "cold-blooded killer" Sunday, as Turkish-Israeli relations continue to escalate.
"The occupier which kicks people lying on the ground is easily offended," Cavusoglu wrote on Twitter. "Netanyahu is a cold-blooded killer of modern times, responsible for massacres of thousands of innocent Palestinians, bombing children on beaches."Saturday night Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had slammed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s attack against Jews, stating that he was hardly in any position to be preaching morality.
“Erdogan – the occupier of northern Cyprus, whose army massacres women and children in Kurdish villages, inside and outside Turkey should not preach to Israel,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu spoke out after Erdogan publicly stated, that Jews in Israel kick people when they lie on the floor, adding that Jews kick not only men but also women and children.
