Turkey rejects Israeli PM’s ‘baseless, delusional’ claims on national army
Turkey’s Defense Ministry on Tuesday rejected the “baseless and delusional” claims made by Israeli Prime Minister Benajmin Netanyahu on the Turkish army.
“Those with the blood of Palestinian children on their hands cannot slander the Turkish army,” read a written statement. The statement came after Netanyahu on Sunday attacked the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over Turkey’s counter-terror operation and Cyprus issues on Twitter.
Erdogan responded to Netanyahu’s tweet, saying the Israeli premier is heading “state terror”.
Earlier this month, local media reports said the Israeli State Prosecutor’s Office recommended the indictment of Netanyahu for alleged bribery in two separate corruption cases.
Netanyahu will also likely be charged for breach of trust in a third corruption probe.
The Turkish Defense Ministry added: “There has never been any embarrassing case in the missions and operations carried out during the glorious history of the Turkish Armed Forces.”
