Netanyahu Tells Kerry: Erdogan’s words were anti-Semitic


Waar, Duhok:

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry the comments of Receb Tayb Erdogan, Turkish PM, were anti-Semitic.

In a phone call overnight on Sunday, Netanyahu told Kerry that Erdogan’s words profaned the memory of the Holocaust.

On Saturday, Erdogan in a speech condemned Israel’s attack on Gaza and said, “Those who condemn Hitler day and night have surpassed Hitler in barbarism.”

According to Hurriyet Daily News, Erdogan, speaking at a campaign rally, said, “terrorist state Israel has attacked Gaza once again, hitting innocent children who were playing on a beach.”

Amid international call for a ceasefire, the conflict in Gaza has claimed the lives of over 600 Palestinians so far.

Kerry has met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in Cairo for talks over a truce in the Gaza Strip.
