Netanyahu: Ankara in no position to lecture Israel
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at Turkey in response to its president Recep Tayyip Erdogan's claim that Israel mounted an "inhumane attack" on Palestinians during Friday’s mass protests on the border with Israel.
"The most moral army in the world will not accept moral preaching from someone who for years has been bombing a civilian population indiscriminately," he said, in apparent reference to Ankara’s ongoing battle against the Kurds.
"That’s apparently how Ankara marks [April Fool’s Day]," Times of Israel cited Netanyahu as saying.
On Saturday, Erdogan said during a speech in Istanbul, "I strongly condemn the Israeli government over its inhumane attack."
