Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slams Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for his comments earlier today calling Israel a “terrorist state.”

“He calls Israel a terror state, but in his actions he supports the terror state of Hamas,” says Netanyahu, in comments released by his office.

“He himself shelled Turkish villages within the borders of Turkey — we will not accept his preaching.”

Netanyahu was likely referring to Turkish military action against Kurdish areas of the country in recent years.
