Israeli foreign ministry responds to strong remarks about treatment of Palestinians by condemning Turkish human rights record
Tensions have resurfaced between Turkey and Israel, with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan criticising the “racist and discriminatory” treatment of Palestinians, and Israel responding by summoning the Turkish ambassador and condemning Ankara’s human rights record.
Erdoğan, Turkey’s president, denounced Israeli practices during an address in Istanbul on Monday night, describing the blockade of Gaza as having “no place in humanity”.
