Erdogan vows to hold ‘barbaric’ Netanyahu accountable over deadly Rafah strikes

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that his country will do “everything possible” to hold “barbaric” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to account over deadly strikes in Rafah.

“We will do everything possible to hold these barbarians and murderers accountable who have nothing to do with humanity,” Erdogan says, after an Israeli airstrike in Gaza’s southernmost city reportedly killed at least 40 people, most of them civilians, in a center for displaced people.

Israel said the strike targeted two senior Hamas terrorists. But the attack also apparently hit an area in Rafah’s Tel Al-Sultan neighborhood in western Rafah where thousands of people were taking shelter, setting blazes that engulfed several tents and shelters.
