Israeli authorities countered attacks by Turkish autocrat Recep Erdogan (photo) on the country and its military operations in Gaza.
Responsible for human rights violations, including arbitrary arrests, Erdogan accused Israel of being a “Terrorist State” and defended Hamas in a public statement this Wednesday, November 15th.
Erdogan also accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of squandering Israel’s nuclear arsenal and that the end of his government “it was close”.
Israel’s Foreign Minister stated in a post on X, a social network formerly known as Twitter, that “those who harbor terrorists and encourage terrorist organizations will not preach morality to Israel”.
Israeli opposition leader and top political figure outside Israel’s war cabinet, Yair Lapid, also hit back at attacks from Erdogan, who is trying to position himself as a leader of the Muslim world.
“We will not take any moral lessons from President Erdogan, a man with a repulsive record when it comes to human rights”published Lapid on X.
