Ankara [Turkey], Dec 23 (ANI): Turkey on Sunday dubbed Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a "cold-blooded killer of modern times". "Netanyahu is a cold-blooded killer of modern times," Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said in a tweet.
Ankara's reaction seems to be an apparent reply to Netanyahu's tweet where he labelled Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as the "occupier of northern Cyprus".
"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 had tweeted on Saturday.
To this, Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu tweeted, "The occupier which kicks people lying on the ground is easily offended: @netanyahu is a cold-blooded killer of modern times, responsible for massacres of thousands of innocent Palestinians, bombing children on beaches. Turkey will never stop exposing the truth".



"Instead of begging President Erdogan not to speak out the truth, @netanyahu should end the lawless occupation of Palestinian lands and the brutal oppression of Palestinian people. Bashing Erdogan or using Kurds as a political chip will not save him from his domestic troubles," Ibrahim Kalin, the Chief Counselor to Erdogan tweeted on Sunday.
Furthermore, the spokesperson of the ruling Justice and Development (AK) party Omer Celik told Anadolu Agency that Netanyahu is "disturbed" by the Turkish President's work for the oppressed. (ANI)
