Israel, Turkey exchange words over killing at Gaza border

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan have traded barbs over deadly clashes on the Gaza border.

Sixteen Palestinians were killed on Friday after Israeli soldiers opened fire on some violent demonstrators.

President Erdogan accused Mr Netanyahu of being “a terrorist” on Sunday.

It came after Mr Netanyahu rejected Ankara’s “moral lessons” and accused turkey of indiscriminately bombing civilians in its actions abroad.

He has previously called Mr Erdogan someone who “bombs Kurdish villagers” in a reference to Turkey’s military operations in the Afrin area of Syria.

Mr Erdogan had earlier labelled the Israeli response on Friday an “inhumane attack”

Clashes broke out after thousands of Palestinians marched to the border at the start of a six-week protest, dubbed the great March of return.
