After Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says that Hamas isn’t a group of terrorists, Foreign Ministry spokesman Lior Haiat says that “Israel wholeheartedly rejects the Turkish President’s harsh words about the terrorist organization Hamas.”

“Hamas is a despicable terrorist organization worse than ISIS that brutally and intentionally murders babies, children, women and the elderly, takes civilians hostage and uses its own people as human shields.” Haiat says in a tweet.

“Even the Turkish president’s attempt to defend the terrorist organization and his inciting words will not change the horrors that the whole world has seen and the unequivocal fact: Hamas = ISIS.”
